  • Geräusch - das Andere der Musikby Camille Hongler; Christoph Haffter; Silvan Moosmüller

    transcript Verlag 2014; US$ 31.00

    Geräusche sind noch keine Musik - oder keine Musik mehr. Im Konzert, im Tanz wie im Film sind die Grenzen zwischen Musik und Geräusch unscharf und beweglich: Aus dem Störgeräusch wird Musik, aus Wohlklang Lärm. Es ist daher für die Wissenschaft unerlässlich, das Geräusch zu untersuchen, wenn sie verstehen will, was Musik ausmacht. Im Spannungsfeld... more...

  • Epic Soundby Stephen C. Meyer

    Indiana University Press 2014; US$ 34.99

    Lavish musical soundtracks contributed a special grandeur to the new widescreen, stereophonic sound movie experience of postwar biblical epics such as Samson and Delilah, Ben-Hur, and Quo Vadis. In Epic Sound, Stephen C. Meyer shows how music was utilized for various effects, sometimes serving as a vehicle for narrative plot and at times complicating... more...
