<< Mark Rakatansky speaks about the sound investigation behind his essay “John Coltrane’s Sample and Scratch,” included in his book Tectonic Acts of Desire and Doubt (Architectural Association, 2012). Presented at Künstlerhaus Stuttgart in 2002, Rakatansky’s My Favorite FavoriteThings is an example of theory in action—a sound experiment revealing John Coltrane’s parametrical methods of composition, and the author’s unique approach to design, scholarship, and art. This special issue of Symposium marks the world premiere of Rakatansky’s My Favorite FavoriteThings on radio.>>
