Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What is music for? How does it work? What can it teach us? Intuitively, we feel there must be answers to such questions, but they tend to be scattered throughout a wide range of different areas of study, from acoustics to music history, from psychology to composition. In this brilliant and thought-provoking book, Maconie seeks the answers to these and other fundamental questions about music, integrating music and appropriate scientific research in a new evaluation of his topic. In so doing, he argues passionately for a reappraisal of music, not as mere entertainment, but as something basic to our experience of listening and communicating in sound, and an art which has exerted a profound influence on society.

Synopsis:

In this brilliant and thought-provoking book Robin Maconie examines these fundamental questions, matching musical tradition and scientific knowledge to produce answers which are often unexpected, frequently inspired and invariably illuminating.
