About this book

Acoustic Interculturalism is a study of the soundscapes of intercultural performance through the examination of sound's performativity. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, the book examines an akoumenological reception of sound to postulate the need for an acoustic knowing – an awareness of how sound shapes the intercultural experience.

He has published several essays on intercultural performance, music and Shakespeare, and the intermediality of film and computer games.

Reviews

'Marcus Cheng Chye Tan's compelling book, Acoustic Interculturalism, is a necessary reminder that too often we hear but don't listen. Noting the general lack of attention to sound in theatre and performance studies, Tan advocates the merits of deep listening and a phenomenological approach to sound as a means of analyzing intercultural performance... a vital challenge to theatre and performance studies with relevance to all forms of cultural expression engaging with the acoustic.' - David Butler, New Theatre Quarterly
