an opening gambit

It may not stay this way but it really is better than ‘hello world’… These pages will collate information that will relate to my PhD studies and form the basis from which I will write the main thesis. Much like one of the first books I encountered, through recommendation,  in preparation for this work – Walter Benjamin’s Arcade Project – I will endeavour to gather interesting and pertinent writing, images, music and general ephemera into a sprawling mass of ‘stuff’ from which will emerge a coherent and readable dissertation.

So, the Urban landscape as inspiration for musical composition… here we go!
