Customer Review

on 14 March 2010
The symbolic representations of music are detailed in this book from ancient Greece to the near present, it is structured around authors and musicians that have offered abstract relationships to music, philosophy and spirituality. Each chapter offers a brief synopsis of one authors views and then presents source material, it seems a rather dry structure at first, but the actual accounts and ideas are filled with romantic notions of how we could relate to music now and many ideas that have been lost to us in our modern age about the power and beauty that music held for ancient peoples and cultures.

As somebody whom works with soundscapes as expressions of emotion i found this to be a very inspirational source for where i could take some of the more conceptual notions involved in my own work, thou it does not deal with sound exclusively and has a more musical focus, their is no reason that much of the material contained within can not be adapted to work with noise and sound.
