Description: On buses, trains, and streets over the past decade, people increasingly tune into their Walkmans and tune out city sounds. Why? What does the Walkman mean to these people and to urban culture more generally? Does it heighten reality? Enable people to cope? Isolate? Create a space? Combat boredom?

Opening up a new area of urban studies, the auditory experience of self and place. Sounding Out the City enhances our understanding of the role of media and technology in everyday life. Culture always has an auditory component that shapes attitudes and behavior -- perhaps nowhere more so than in the city where sound is intensified. Michael Bull reformulates our understanding of how people, through the senses, negotiate central experiences of the urban, such as space, place, time, and the management of everyday experience, and examines the critical role technology plays.
