Paul Kendall. The Sounds of Social Space: Branding, Built Environment, and Leisure in Urban China. Honolulu: University of Hawai‘i Press, 2019. viii, 207 pp. Hardcover $68.00, ISBN 978-0-8248-7770-5. In The Sounds of Social Space, Paul Kendall, once a music journalist in Beijing prior to starting a career in academia, ventures to Kaili, a small city in southwest China’s Guizhou province, to examine the interactions between social space, sound-making, and everyday life. Initially seeking to investigate the ofﬁcial classiﬁcation of ethnic minorities in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), Kendall was both struck and intrigued by discrepancies he observed between the local inhabitants’ views of their own music-making experiences and their opinions towards the ofﬁcial branding of their city as the “homeland of one hundred festivals.” Originating from this new yet related mission, Kendall’s book provides a thoughtful and insightful examination of the intricate relationship between city branding, built environment, and everyday living of the space.
