I was looking for a good book on sound propagation. I operate in the field of sound design and this book helped me think about sound in a completely new way. A more organic view is offered here and if you are looking for a good source book for noise pollution or an interesting recount of audio history i recommend this book for you. I am an audio engineer by schooling and this really offered an interesting aspect into sound design and also some interesting history.

Format: Paperback
A good and important read for people interested in sound design. Musicians and composers, as well as sound designers, will find interesting historical notes and references that I was not aware of prior to reading this book.
Well written.

Format: Paperback
Top-notch writing about our sonic environment by an eminent Canadian composer. Reprint (with no changes) of a 1970s hardcover with a different title.

What a load of pretentious nonsense.

I shouted that!

My neigbour, affected by that shout, now requires psychiatric help.

At least she will have a writer for company!!
