While sipping a “domestic” coffee in my favorite cafe on the Danube in Belgrade I read this beautiful essay by Brandon LaBelle, “Sonic Site-Specifities,” from the huge book Sound Art, edited by Peter Weibel. Brandon’s text deals with the political, social, and ethical benefits of sound art; IMO, it is a must-read for anyone interested in this art form. Simultaneously, I was listening to this beautiful underwater recording by Sharon Stewart, which connects so very well to Brandon’s message.
