Chapter 13: Sonic Art in Everyday Life 

Abstract

The title connotes at least two methods of resolving what at first appears to be remote and unrelated categories. The first and most obvious suggests a natural embedding of pragmatic sonic arts practice into daily life, while the second relies on the cross-transferability of sonic arts concepts (and in particular universal laws) as a means of understanding daily life on a deeply enlightened level. The first is about doing and the second is about knowing. As I have already discussed Health in Chapter 12: Sound Therapy this chapter will concentrate on the dichotomy of the mundane and the extraordinary.
