Raffaele Pe's Agogic Maps: From Musical Phrasing to Enhancement of Urban PDF

By Raffaele Pe

This booklet explores the worth of the musical inspiration of “agogics” – the amendment of normal rhythm to reinforce expressive power – in figuring out city spatial configurations in the present technological context and in constructing city maps that make the most sonic indications to create an open studying framework. The e-book starts off by means of discussing the which means and value of agogics within the musical and creative realm, near to the paintings of Adolphe Appia, Emile-Jaques Dalcroze, and Iannis Xenakis, between others. Its relevance to cartography and mapping is then tested, bearing in mind the contributions of Ian McHarg, invoice Hillier, Mark Shepard, and Robin Minard. the character and cost of agogic maps, for instance in fostering wisdom of position and powerful association of spatial improvement, are defined intimately, as regards to case stories in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Segrate, Italy. it really is defined how agogic maps benefit from cutting edge different types and scripting apparatus to supply a brand new mapping device for spatial and concrete configurations, highlighting the interdependence among aural signs and spatial variables. This publication could be of curiosity to architects, urbanists, and musicians with a particular curiosity in area and sound design.
