This e-book explores the worth of the musical idea of “agogics” – the amendment of standard rhythm to augment expressive capability – in realizing city spatial configurations in the present technological context and in constructing city maps that take advantage of sonic indications to create an open studying framework. The e-book starts off by means of discussing the that means and value of agogics within the musical and inventive 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 know-how of position and potent association of spatial improvement, are defined intimately, near to case reports in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Segrate, Italy. it really is defined how agogic maps benefit from cutting edge different types and scripting gear to supply a brand new mapping software for spatial and concrete configurations, highlighting the interdependence among aural signs and spatial variables. This ebook should be of curiosity to architects, urbanists, and musicians with a selected curiosity in area and sound design.
