Thanks to an article in XLR8R magazine, I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.
The book, written by Steve Goodman A.K.A. dubstep producer Kode 9 takes a deep look at the way in which sound infiltrates our lives.
A massive read, for sure.
Goodman “surveys the soundscape in the midst of which we live today, tracking its various guises, from Jamaican dub soundsystems to US military infrasound crowd-control devices, from Muzak as mind-numbing sonic architecture to grime and dubstep as enhancers of postapocalyptic dread, and from the cosmic vibrations left behind by the Big Bang to the latest viral sound contagions.”
