June’s reading is part II of Eyes of The Skin by Juhani Pallasmaa. Whilst strictly speaking an architectural text, it will serve to offer a point of entry to engage with questions of multi-sensorial perception and spatiality. Link to PDF: http://auricle.org.nz/
For online discussion around these texts, and if you’d like to suggest a text for upcoming consideration please join the Reading Around Sound Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/
Reading Around Sound is a monthly reading group that endeavours to facilitate theoretical and critical engagement with contemporary sonic practices and related issues through close reading, and ongoing discussion and debate. It is a shared initiative between the Auricle and the Audio Foundation with monthly events in both Auckland and Christchurch.
