(Book). This up-to-date book comprehensively covers all aspects of speech and music sound reinforcement. It is roughly divided into four sections: Section 1 provides the tutorial fundamentals that all audio engineers will need, discussing subjects such as fundamentals of acoustics, psychoacoustics, basic electrical theory and digital processing. Section 2 deals with the fundamental classes of hardware that the modern engineer will use, such as loudspeaker systems and components, microphones, mixers, amplifiers and signal processors. Special attention is given to digital techniques for system control and to audio signal analysis. Section 3 deals with the basics of system design, from concept to final realization. It covers topics such as basic system type and speech intelligibility, site survey, user needs analysis and project management. Section 4 discusses individual design areas, such as sports facilities, large-scale tour sound systems, high-level music playback, systems for the theater, religious facilities, and other meeting spaces. The book is written in an accessible style, but does not lack for ample amounts of technical information. It is truly a book for the 21st century!

Kim Gordon, Indie-Ikone, Bassistin und Sängerin der legendären Sonic Youth, über ein Leben für die Kunst Sonic Youth war eine der einflussreichsten Alternative-Bands der 1980er- und 1990er-Jahre und Kim Gordon ihr heimlicher Star. Als Bassistin, Sängerin und Songwriterin der Band war sie Vorbild für eine ganze Generation von Frauen. Jetzt erzählt sie ihre Geschichte.Ihre Musik, die sich im Grenzland von Punk, No Wave und Noise-Rock austobte, war nicht zu überhören. Als Kim Gordon und Thurston Moore 1981 in New York die Band Sonic Youth gründeten, lag die Stadt finanziell am Boden, die Kunstszene in den Clubs aber blühte. Nirvana, Hole, Smashing Pumpkins – für diese und viele andere Bands waren Sonic Youth wichtige Wegbereiter, ihr Einfluss auf die Independent-Szene ist kaum zu überschätzen. Fans und Kritiker lieben die Band für ihren unverwechselbaren Sound und ihre absolute künstlerische Integrität. Kim Gordon und Thurston Moore galten lange Zeit als das Traumpaar des Rock’n’Roll, sie haben eine gemeinsame Tochter. 2011 trennten sich die beiden nach 27-jähriger Ehe und Sonic Youth löste sich auf. Kim Gordon erzählt in ihrem Buch von den Anfängen im New York der frühen Achtzigerjahre, von ihrem Leben als Musikerin, bildende Künstlerin, Modedesignerin und wie das zusammenging mit ihrer Rolle als Ehefrau und Mutter – und vom Schmerz einer Trennung nach fast 30 Jahren Ehe und künstlerischer Zusammenarbeit.

Page: 466

Das Jazz Theorie Buch ist wohl das umfangreichste Werk seiner Art. Es ist ähnlich aufgebaut wie der vom selben Autor bei Advance Music erschienene Bestseller Das Jazz Piano Buch und genauso praxisbezogen. Theoretische Sachverhalte werden immer anhand musikalischer Beispiele und Transkriptionen von berühmten Aufnahmen der Jazzgeschichte erklärt. Von den theoretischen Grundlagen wie Intervalle, Akkord/Skalen-Theorie (Dur, Moll, Vermindert, Ganzton, Bebop, Pentatonik etc.) über die II-V-I Verbindung, Blues und Rhythm Changes bis hin zu Salsa und Latin Jazz werden in 24 Kapitel alle wichtigen Themen ausführlich behandelt. Daneben enthält das Buch nützliche Information über die Interpretation von Lead Sheets (Melodie mit Akkordsymbolen), eine ausführliche Repertoire-Liste mit Quellenangaben und Hinweisen auf Play-Along-Aufnahmen und eine Diskographie. Vier höchst interessante Kapitel mit mehr als 100 Seiten sind dem Thema Reharmonisation gewidmet. Titles: Teil I Theorie: Akkorde und Skalen * Teil II Improvisation: Das Spielen über Changes * Teil III Reharmonisation * Teil IV Das Repertoire * Teil V Sonstiges.

Loudspeaker Handbook

The prospect of writing a book on loudspeakers is a daunting one, since only a multivolume encyclopedia could truly do justice to the subject. Authors writing about this subject have generally concentrated on their own areas of expertise, often covering their own specific topics in great detail. This book is no exception; the author's background is largely in professional loudspeaker application and specification, and the emphasis in this book is on basic component design, operation, measurement, and system concepts. The book falls largely into two sections; the first (Chapters 1-9) emphasizing the building blocks of the art and the second (Chapters 10-16) emphasizing applications, measurements, and modeling. While a thorough understanding of the book requires a basic knowledge of complex algebra, much of it is understandable through referring to the graphics. Every attempt has been made to keep graphics clear and intuitive. Chapter 1 deals with the basic electro-mechano-acoustical chain between input to the loudspeaker and its useful output, with emphasis on the governing equations and equivalent circuits. Chapter 2 is a survey of cone and dome drivers, the stock-in-trade of the industry. They are discussed in terms of type, design, performance, and perfor mance limits. Chapter 3 deals with magnetics. Once a source of difficulty in loudspeaker design, magnetics today yields easily to modeling techniques. Chapter 4 discusses low-frequency (LF) system performance, primarily from the viewpoint of Thiele-Small parameters. We also discuss some of the multi chamber LF systems that became popular during the eighties.
