We experience spaces not only by seeing but also by listening. We can navigate a room in the dark, and "hear" the emptiness of a house without furniture. Our experience of music in a concert hall depends on whether we sit in the front row or under the balcony. The unique acoustics of religious spaces acquire symbolic meaning. Social relationships are strongly influenced by the way that space changes sound. In "Spaces speak, are you listening?", Barry Blesser and Linda-Ruth Salter examine auditory spatial awareness: experiencing space by attentive listening. Every environment has an aural architecture.
Integrating contributions from a wide range of disciplines -including architecture, music, acoustics, evolution, anthropology, cognitive psychology, audio engineering, and many others- "Space speak, are you listening?" establishes the concepts and language of aural architecture. These concepts provide an interdisciplinary guide for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of how space enhances ourwell-being. Aural architecture is not the exclusive domain of specialists. Accidentally or internationally, we all function as aural architects.
