Today was a day of recovery from a midterm thesis binge that was immediately followed by a Korean BBQ/karaoke binge in Oakland. By the way, Koreans can lay down some legit rap. And typos in the lyrics also significantly boost the entertainment value.
Now that I have a chance to breathe, I can mention that Linda Bennett, author of the razor-sharp archi-ninja blog, has posted a piece that I wrote. It's a Soundscraper manifesto, beginning with my interest in the passive ninja-defense system of the famous Nightingale floors at Nijo Castle, Kyoto. I talk about recording the sounds of cities in Morocco, and then I go into some detail about Rafael Moneo's LA Cathedral where in 2004 I experienced a 'shower of sound'.
Have a look, or should I say, have a listen.
