A quick overview of Sound Urbanism / Victoria Meyers architect, to date. The class has covered works by Stephen Vitiello, including his Light Recordings from the World Trade Center, and Pieces from Marfa, Texas. John Corigliano, composer, whose piece 'Campani di Ravello', is an attempt to recreate the spatial memory of Ravello, Italy, through bells, and other sounds. Ravello is a unique place, where five medieval chapels with original Medieval Bells still mark dawn, daily. A re-cap of the readings from Blesser + Salter's book, especially readings that detail the ideas behind the concept of a 'soundmark'. We checked in with the Seminar's Cincinnati Sound Sections.
Above: Sound Urbanism's 'logo' image, showing the concept of a civic space perimeter marked through sounds, such as the bells of Ravello. Next to that, images of Stephen Vitiello's installation space at the HighLine, NYC, and, next to that, an image of Marfa Theater, where Victoria Meyers architect was commissioned to provide lighting design, as well as the layout for the theater interiors.
Above: John Corigliano's Ravello image. Next to that, Max Neuhaus's image of a Fire Truck, which is a set up to Sound Urbanism, and a discussion around Max Neuhaus's project to redesign civic urban sounds, including sirens.

Above: Max Neuhaus's diagram of his various interests in sound investigations. The diagram serves as a formal Organization that shows how Max Neuhaus conceived aural spaces: Place: Movemnet; Walks: Passage; Invention: Sensation; Performance: Networks.
