Sound art and spatial practices : situating sound installation art since 1958 This dissertation examines the emergence and development of sound installation art, an under-recognized tradition that has developed between music, architecture, and media art practices since the late 1950s. Unlike many musical works, which are concerned with organizing sounds in time, sound installations organize sounds in space; they thus necessitate new theoretical and analytical models that take into consideration the spatial situated-ness of sound. Existing discourses on "spatial sound" privilege technical descriptions of sound localization. By contrast, this dissertation examines the ways in which concepts of space are socially, culturally, and politically construed, and how spatially-organized sound works reflect and resist these different constructions.

New Store Look in Brand Revamp at Sisley Berlin Sisley, the brand owned by the Benetton group, has opened a new concept store in Berlin as part of a total image overhaul. The 1,300 sq. ft. shop launch is located in a former restaurant on the Neue Schönhauser Strasse, in the Mitte area of the city, famed for its cutting-edge brand assortment. Much of this store design however seems to be taking elements that already existed in this building and reworking them with props and fixtures. This is because going forward each Sisley store will have its own theme and feel to synch in with its location and store unit, according to the company. WATERSHED LAUNCHES STAND ALONE BRAND SITE - SurfGirl Magazine - Womens and Girls Surfing, Surf Fashion, Surf News, Surf Videos Watershed Brand was launched off the back of the successful Watershed Shop concept store which opened in 2012 in Newquay, Cornwall. Watershed wanted to create a business that was true to the founders interests and pastimes. “In a world where there were so many emerging companies and business’ we wanted to stand out and try to start, run and develop a business that focused on the values of what we supply. As avid designers and photographers with a love of the outdoors, we created Watershed Shop which became the beginning of a new era of business and a new start in life” (jake patterson co-founder)

Novel concept: Sonia Rykiel's Parisian outpost pays homage to local history When Charles Dickens' Mr. Brownlow tells Oliver Twist, 'There are books of which the backs and covers are by far the best part,' he was clearly referring to lousy writing and not decorative value. That line, however, assumes new meaning upon entering the Sonia Rykiel flagship at 175 Boulevard Saint-Germain, where 50,000 books comprise a novel pop-up store concept. Conceived by Julie de Libran, the brand's artistic director, in collaboration with publisher-director Thomas Lenthal and artist André Saraïva, the renovated space reads as an 'exaggeration' that makes an impact on many levels. Purely in visual terms, the repetition of the pale wood shelving from floor to ceiling becomes a dimensional nod to the signature Rykiel stripes. If the arrangement of paperbacks seems more random than a rainbow gradient or author's last name, it's also more deliberate than the average home bookcase.
