The Four Strata

Sound-Politics in São Paulo

Leonardo Cardoso

Oxford University Press

We have identified some of the most controversial sounds in São Paulo and considered how government actors articulate mechanisms to regulate these sounds. Having compiled this information, in this conclusion I summarize the findings presented in the book and suggest potential lines of inquiry for a study of citizenship and modernity. I do this by further elaborating on the notion of sound-politics, examining how sounds have entered and left the sphere of state control in São Paulo. Integrating the book’s two analytical threads presented in the Introduction (modes of existence and governmental arrangements), I describe sound-politics in São Paulo as a field comprised of four strata: sonic complexes, debate axes, governmental dilemmas, and governmental solutions.

Keywords:   sonic complexes, debate axes, governmental solutions, governmental dilemmas, noise, sound-politics
