BERLIN SONIC PLACES: Book Review

“Cusak’s description of his own Hinterhof (courtyard), where the quotidian rhythms of neighbours-never-met ricochet off the walls will be familiar to residents and AirBnB guests alike. Describing Maybachufer’s bustling market, Udo Noll cites similarities in a 1929 Franz Hessel text about the same spot, revealing the capacity for soundscapes, and the human routine that informs them, to endure beyond their associated landscapes – even in this city.”
