Imagined and Remembered
FROM JAPANESE RITUAL TO POLISH HISTORY to Canadian soundscape composition, this collection maps the fascinating relationship between environmental sound and cultural imagination. Over twenty-five years ago, renowned Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer pioneered the study of sound in the environment through his World Soundscape Project. Today, acoustic ecologists are active globally; their concerns range from noise pollution to the preservation of unique sound environments. In Sonic Geography Imagined and Remembered, sound artists, designers, and scholars from eight countries offer a wide range of perspectives on the place of sound in our world and on how our place in the world is articulated through sound.
Sonic Geography Imagined and Remembered explores a world of sound experiences drawn from everyday life. These evocative essays reflect the passionate concern that acoustic ecologists have for the rich diversity of sonic environments.
