Recomposing the City will have a book chapter in the forthcoming volume The Acoustic City, edited by Matthew Gandy and BJ Nilsen. This chapter explores the possibilities and limitations offered by acoustic mapping, discussing such projects as Montréal Sound Map by Max Stein and Julian Stein, The Roaring Twenties by Emily Thompson in collaboration with Scott Mahoy, Chris Watson's Inside the Circle of Fire: A Sound Map of Sheffield, Matilde Meireles'  X Marks the Spot, and Ian Rawes' London Sound Survey, among many others. Please look out for The Acoustic City, which will be published by Jovis in 2014.
