(sonicArts) reading assignment: attali and schafer

Read for Thursday, 8/30:

  • Jacques Attali, “Noise and Politics” (AC, pp. 7 – 9)
  • R. Murray Schafer, “The Music of the Environment” (AC, pp. 29 – 39)

The Schafer is longer, but contains very timely philosophy behind our environmental listening and recording activities.

Be warned that I will give you an assignment (take-home) with questions on the readings we’ve had so far.
