polis: Conference to Explore Nationalism and the City | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

As urbanists, we regularly claim that "the city" breathes life into those within it. Yet this relationship is twofold: ‘the city’ would be nothing without the breath and imagination of its own people.

I am also interested in sound recordist Bernie Krause’s theory of “biophony”—the audible equivalent of biodiversity, where species occupy acoustic niches as much as trophic ones (and certain highly developed species, like the Asian paradise flycatcher, can even occupy multiple niches in a complex soundscape). Krause proposes that with proper training one can learn to “hear” the diversity (or lack thereof) in certain ecosystems. Conversely, interruption of and incursion into the natural soundscape, a regular effect of human “internal combustion” activity, can impact the functioning of the ecosystem (so at rush hour the robins cannot hear the worms).

Why Cities Keep Growing, Corporations And People Always Die, And Life Gets Faster | Conversation | Edge | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

The question is, as a scientist, can we take these ideas and do what we did in biology, at least based on networks and other ideas, and put this into a quantitative, mathematizable, predictive theory, so that we can understand the birth and death of companies, how that stimulates the economy?

DOXIC SHOCK: Deliberating Autopoiesis

DOXIC SHOCK: Deliberating Autopoiesis | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Autopoiesis principally dealt with determining the essence of living beings to start off with, thus calling to attention a clarification between organization and structure. This distinction was highlighted with organization subtending the set of all possible relations of the autopoietic processes of an organism and structure as a synchronic snapshot from the organizational set that was active at any given instant.

Backward Induction and Option Valuation | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Today we are going to explore how to value options. By "options", I mean situations in which you have the right, but not the obligation, to take an action. Having a right without an obligation is a bit like a free lunch: it is inherently valuable, and our goal is to quantify this.

All have money in their pockets with which they can buy and sell apples, if they so choose. What determines the price of apples?

El Flanèur Baudeleriano en la Posmodernidad « La Ciudad Viva | Aural Complex Landscape | Scoop.it

Al introducir el concepto de “Flanèur” en la posmodernidad del entorno urbanístico que nos es propio, obtendremos como referencia clave un término que va más allá de la mera poética Baudelaireana y del pensamiento de Walter Benjamín, para quien el flanèur, es una suerte de topógrafo urbano capaz de descifrar en todos sus aspectos a la Ciudad ya que en ésta, como en su casa (Benjamin, 1991; 51), principalmente porque al recorrerla, al callejearla, al estar inmerso en su accesibilidad, movilidad y equipamiento urbano, la intuye, la deconstruye y vuelve a construir.
