Agogic Maps: From Musical Phrasing to Enhancement of Urban by Raffaele Pe

By Raffaele Pe

This booklet explores the worth of the musical thought of “agogics” – the amendment of normal rhythm to reinforce expressive power – in knowing city spatial configurations in the present technological context and in constructing city maps that make the most sonic signs to create an open studying framework. The publication begins via discussing the that 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, taking into consideration the contributions of Ian McHarg, invoice Hillier, Mark Shepard, and Robin Minard. the character and cost of agogic maps, for instance in fostering know-how of position and potent association of spatial improvement, are defined intimately, with regards to case reviews in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Segrate, Italy. it's defined how agogic maps make the most of 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 house and sound design.
