Soundtrack for Spaces 2

This video reminded me of a post from this past summer regarding Soundtrack for Spaces, where I speculated on the connection of space and a particular experiential musical accompaniment (particularly that viewed while in motion). Check out this one, compiled from Google Street View imagery with a soundtrack by Phoenix. (via Urban Tick) Brilliant.

  1. about the connection between spaces and music: you should really check out the video clip of "star guitar" by the chemical brothers, everything that happens in that clip is audible!

    there is a clear relation between (landscape)architectecture and music, unfortunately there has been little research on this subject, as far as i know. do you have any recommendations on this subject?

  2. Thanks for the heads up... will check out the 'star guitar' clip. I know of some precedents in architecture - but the musical analogy seems more appropriate for the temporality and movement within landscape. I guess much like much design meaning - it's a question of taste, heterogeneity, and control - i.e. trying to design it would be maddening - but fun to speculate on. I'll see if I can dig up some others.
