Beyond text?

John Levack Drever

Manchester University Press

Hong Kong, Ochlophonic Study #3: Hong Kong is a study of the ‘auditory culture of crowds’ in Hong Kong that questions the sense we may make of language when it is absorbed into the sonic backdrop of competing urban sounds. Through sonic composition, it aims at presenting an evocation of the sheer intensity of this most vociferous and yet diverse of places, where the roar of the urban crowd becomes a metaphor for a profound sense of otherness.
