This is a remarkable exploration of how sound permeates all aspects of life - from the streets to our homes, and from shopping malls to the underground. "Acoustic Territories: Sound Culture and Everyday Life" offers an expansive reading of auditory life. It provides a careful consideration of the performative dynamics inherent to sound culture and acts of listening, and discusses how auditory studies may illuminate understandings of contemporary society. Combining research on urbanism, popular culture and auditory issues, "Acoustic Territories" opens up multiple perspectives - it challenges debates surrounding noise pollution and charts an 'acoustic politics of space' by unfolding auditory experience as located within larger cultural histories and related ideologies. Brandon LaBelle traces auditory life through a topographic structure: beginning with underground territories, through to the home as a site, and then further, to streets and neighborhoods, and finally to the sky itself. This structure follows sound as it appears in specific auditory designs, as it is mobilized within various cultural projects, and queries how it comes to circulate through everyday life as a medium for social transformation. "Acoustic Territories" uncovers the embedded tensions and potentiality inherent to sound as it exists in the everyday spaces around us.

"LaBelle, a sound artist and an academic, writes with a fluid brilliance about the way that sound interacts with the other elements of our experience with a kind of comprehension and comprehensiveness that can suggest Marshall McLuhan's Understanding Media or Siegfried Giedion's Mechanization Takes Command, resulting in a visionary tome linking history, subcultures and street art. It's not a book about music per se, but it's hard to imagine a reading of it not interacting creatively with anyone's thinking on musical practice and meaning.LaBelle has a kind of accepting overview that I can't help admiring. It's too easy to simply decry noise pollution or the behavioural engineering of public space without actually exploring what a specific event might mean (e.g., how sound is wrapped up in identity and issues of private and public space), but LaBelle has the ability to keep thinking where many others would just react. It's an ability that makes this one of the more stimulating reads of the year."-Point of Departure

3.0 von 5 Sternen Dissapointing 2. Oktober 2011
Von Azazello - Veröffentlicht auf
I really appreciated LaBelle's brief critique of acoustic ecology in his last book (Background Noise), so I had high hopes for this one - especially as the title seems to announce an even more direct engagement with the role of the soundscape in everyday life. Unfortunately the book fails to significantly develop the argument from the last book in any substantial way. Instead, it pedals around its topic for over 200 pages, in chapters very loosely oriented around archetypal urban spaces (underground, home, sidewalk, street, shopping mall, sky). LaBelle often departs from focusing on sound culture in particular to rhapsodize about urban space more generally. This isn't inherently a problem, except the book switches subjects so rapidly (every few pages) it often fails to convince on any given point. LaBelle breezily quotes all manner of theorists and artists without contextualizing their work or building their ideas into a larger argument of his own. This left me wishing that the author had at least done some 'everyday life' research on his own, but there isn't much in this respect aside from a few personal anecdotes. Perhaps tellingly, the book lacks a concluding chapter (or even a concluding paragraph!), and ends when the last chapter on 'sky' runs out of steam. And at that point he wasn't really talking about skies anyway.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Theoretical yet relatable & relevant 26. März 2013
Von Denise - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
LaBelle explores evocative language and "case studies" of sorts to convey his theoretical understanding of "sound culture and everyday life." I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea but if you're interested in performance studies, sound studies, critical theory pertaining to everyday life or finding vocabulary to handle the abstract to the material, this is a good starting point.
