European Acoustic heritage publication

September 26th, 2012

Ya está disponible para descargar la publicación European Acoustic Heritage.

“This is a book about European acoustic heritage. The authors and editors are proposing multiple ways to define, describe, conceptualise, document and represent acoustic heritage of various sound cultures in Europe. The writers are sharing knowledge on major research projects and methodological tools developed among the different disciplines, such as architecture and soundscape studies. They are bringing forth the archival practices in preserving acoustic heritage and how environmental sounds have been utilised in different research and art projects. In addition the book will provide a full description of the online tools that have been developed with the aim of managing and preserving contemporary acoustic heritage in Europe, including a “good practices guide” for any individual, collective or institution interested in participating in the European Acoustic Heritage project. Above all, with this book the authors are hoping to make European sonic environments audible for listeners attracted by the cultural heritage of the continent in different times, places and contexts.

The project European Acoustic Heritage is coordinated by Axencia Galega das Industrias Culturais (AGADIC) and elaborated on by Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Tampereen ammattikorkeakoulu, TAMK), The Centre for Research on Sonic Space & Urban Environment (Centre de Recherche sur l’Espace Sonore et l’environnement urbain de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Grenoble, CRESSON – ENSAG), Phonogrammarchiv, the Austrian Audiovisual Research Archive (Phonogrammarchiv, the Austrian Academy of Sciences PHA-ÖAW ), the multidisciplinary collective Escoitar.org and the Isle of San Simón Foundation (Fundación Illa de San Simón)”.

Libros que compré y que casi compré

August 15th, 2008

Libros que me compré:

Musicophilia de Oliver Sack… [quien se puede resistir a leer un libro sobre la relación entre la música y el cerebro escrito por Sack. Espero que no me defraude]
Music and the mind de Anthony Storn [estaba al lado del anterior y parecía interesante]

Music, Cognition and Computerized Sound. An Introduction to Psychoacoustic de Perry R. Cook [pues este parece completar muy bien el de Sack… A ver cuando los puedo leer]

Sync or Swarm. Improvising Music In a Complex Age de David Borgo.

Harmonograph. A Visual Guide to the Mathematics of Music de Anthony Ashton [un pequeño manual sobre este instrumento que había despertado mi curiosidad en el museo de las Ciencias]

En cuanto los haya leido ampilaré la información…

Libros que casi me compré (no lo hice básicamente por una cuestión de espacio):

The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century de Alex Ross

Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation de Ben Watson
