电脑内随机播放的音乐中传来 Arve Henriksen的 Chiaro

繼2001年的首張個人作品SAKUTEIKI被樂評譽為「具罕見的撼人美感……如呼吸般自然必要的音樂創造」之後,挪威實驗即興團體Supersilent的小喇叭手Arve Henriksen於2004年推出的CHIAROSCURO,同樣描繪出一幅幅動靜相間的聲音美景圖,聽者好似被吸入畫布中,又得以自由穿梭於每個框架,細細欣賞懸掛在凝結時空中的不同情感。Henriksen的音樂以具即興性格的撕裂小喇叭吹奏為主要焦點,由聲音藝術家Jan Bang的採樣配樂與前衛爵士鼓手Audun Kleive含蓄的點擊作為環繞的背景襯托,再加上他自己超高的無言假聲吟唱,有時像乘風飛過的鳥群或雲朵,有時如穿透雲層的一抹亮光,毫不矯作地脆弱而感人。


很大部分原自于The Urban Design Reader里边的章节
这是2007 年自己翻得最多的一本书
Book Description from Amazon.com

The Urban Design Reader brings together some of the most influential writing on the historical development and contemporary practice of urban design. Emerging as a distinct field of environmental design practice in the late 1950s, urban design bridges the fields of architecture, planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering, urban development, and social science – with a focus on physical form and the social use of space. Among university programs, the design professions, interest groups and city governments around the world, the practice of urban design is recognized as a means of addressing 21st Century urban challenges. As planning and development processes have become more participatory in recent years, the number of people interested in improving the design of their cities and neighborhoods has also grown. The timeliness of The Urban Design Reader parallels recent public interest in making better cities and urban places.

This anthology includes forty-one selections that illuminate the history, theory and practice of urban design. In addition to classic writings from the field’s luminaries, such as Jane Jacobs, William H. Whyte, and Kevin Lynch, The Urban Design Reader provides recent material on the urban design aspects of contemporary urbanism, place-making, density, sustainability, neighborhood planning, traffic calming, green infrastructure, and the public realm. The readings are organized into eight topical sections beginning with historical precedents, continuing with a variety of theoretical and pragmatic concerns, and concluding with material on current professional practice. The sections begin with introductory essays that contextualize and situate major themes within the field. In addition, introductions for each selection highlight important lessons emanating from the literature, as well as biographical information on the authors and suggested supplemental reading.
