Product description

Review

"I only wish I had put as much thought into making records as Mark Katz does in appreciating and analyzing them. I've always said that what I do is not rocket science but critiques like this make it sound like it has a place in modern culture." - Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, composer, producer, DJ; "Katz provides a model of how studies of music and technology should be done." - Tim Taylor, author of Global Pop" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

"In Capturing Sound, Mark Katz focuses on the overwhelming technological transformation that changed music from a medium of elite and canonical performances to a mass-consumed fashion-object experienced privately. Underneath the wealth of scholarship and insight about how new recording techniques continue to change our experience of music, Katz wonders how we ourselves have been changed by the successive recording technologies that emerged since Edison. This is a one-of-a-kind book. It will change your mind about why and how we listen to music."--Giles Slade, author of Made To Break

"I only wish I had put as much thought into making records as Mark Katz does in appreciating and analyzing them. I've always said that what I do is not rocket science, but critques like this make it sound like it has a place in modern culture."--Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, composer, producer, DJ
