Always I am drawn to the the dynamic interplay between space and sound. From the reverberations of an auditorium to the clattering morning din of a crowded coffee shop-- "The sonorous world always presses in, adding extra ingredients by which we locate ourselves." The Geographer in me is interested in the site specific sounds. There is an element of history in the act the of recording sound.
I won't have a chance to read all of the section on Cages' work before class, but I am intrigued by what I have read so far. I think it is somewhat difficult to read about sound art without having heard the piece, so look forward to the opportunity to listen.
