Berlin, Chicago, Kolkata – three modern cities,
whose soundscapes are as different as they are similar.
Historically and musically, all three cities bear witness to
changing worlds, above all the diversity and
multiculturalism that led to the rapid growth of urban
centers from the Enlightenment to the present. It is this
sound world of musical difference, which modernity subjected
to auditory transformation, that is the subject of Sounding
Cities. The chapters in this book draw the reader to the
life of the city itself, to its streets and stages,
transforming how we listen to the modern world.
