English edition (published simultaneously with the German edition). Hardcover with illustrated boards, 25.5 by 25.8 cm, 303 [5] pp., heavily illustrated in color. Very good with light cover wear and corner bumping, and some yellowing around the edges of the leaves. From the publisher: “This monographic documentation presents the first ever overview of a multi-disciplinary artistic oeuvre that goes back to 1968 and which has opened up completely new dimensions of spatial experience as well as hitherto unknown ways of seeing and hearing space. Sound is understood here as the creative conceptualization of immaterial space-compositions. One not only hears with one's ears, but with one's whole body. Laboratory-style investigations into 'body-hearing' lead to sculptural sitting, standing and reclining objects. The results create an unusual synthesis of rigorous space-instruments with sensitive modes of perception. This applies equally to Bernhard Leitner's large-scale sound-architectures and to his open urban sound-spaces. The eye listens too, and the ear helps the eye to read. A conversation between Ulrich Conrads and Bernhard Leitner explores the theme of sound, time and space as they occur in acoustics and architecture.”
