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

By Raffaele Pe

This booklet explores the worth of the musical proposal of “agogics” – the amendment of normal rhythm to reinforce expressive capability – in knowing city spatial configurations in the present technological context and in constructing city maps that take advantage of sonic signs to create an open studying framework. The booklet starts off by way of discussing the which means and importance of agogics within the musical and creative realm, almost about 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 price of agogic maps, for instance in fostering information of position and potent association of spatial improvement, are defined intimately, on the subject of case reviews in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Segrate, Italy. it truly is defined how agogic maps benefit from leading edge different types and scripting apparatus to supply a brand new mapping device for spatial and concrete configurations, highlighting the interdependence among aural indications and spatial variables. This booklet might be of curiosity to architects, urbanists, and musicians with a selected curiosity in area and sound layout.
