METAPHONICS was created in collaboration with @stuarthyatt. We designed, edited, and produced this 265-page hardcover book as a companion to Hyatt’s 7-album Field Works box set. (Each copy includes a download card for all seven albums.) We commissioned essays on four soundscape ecologies: geophony, biophony, anthropophony, cosmophony. Contributors include Budhaditya Chattopadhyay, Cheryl Tipp, Enrique Ramirez, Leah Barclay, Gustavo Valdivia, Yiorgis Sakellariou, Sarah Laskow, Stuart Fowkes, and Bernie Krause. @manujawaldia created artwork the accompanies each essay (as well as the book’s endpapers). Peter Liversidge created a series of prompts that precede each section. // Published by @japsambooks and printed by Graphius, METAPHONICS launches Sept 20 in Indianapolis, followed by a tour through Brussels, London, Rotterdam, and Berlin, Sept 22-Oct 8.
