Since its publication in 1990, the first edition of Music, Sound and Technology has enjoyed wide success and has become a popular text in musical acoustical studies at the university level. Recording engineering expert John Eargle examines musical instruments, ensembles, and performance spaces in light of the latest technological developments in acoustics and sound recording. He masterfully delineates subject matter such as sound generation, the interrelation of musical instruments in performance environments, sound recording, psychological acoustics, and the impact of recent technology on music. Eargle's lucid writing and practical approach make the Second Edition a most valuable resource for sound professionals whose success depends on the handling of such everyday, yet crucial, tasks as proper mircophone placement, stage seating, instrumental balance, signal processing, and making adjustments in performance spaces. For recording engineers and other sound professionals, the book is also ideal as a college text in musical or communications studies.
