    Epub David Hendy ¹ Noise PDF/EPUB Ë ¹ noise epub, Noise eBookA kind of social history of soundTwo and a half starsI found the early insights the most interesting—the fact that cave paintings are found at the most sonically interesting places in the caves—where echoes combine and seem to hint at another level of existenceThe subseuent chapters dealing with such topics as the industrial and other revolutions as sources and users of sound often seemed to be making a bit too much of relatively obvious materialI was perhaps put off by the fact that Hendry evidently doesn't get classical music and Beethoven in particularA small but notable omission in the discussions of crowds and arenas is modern sports venues and their attendees And the fact that the traditional home field advantage appears to be the result of the crowd swaying the officials in borderline decisions

    Epub David Hendy ¹ Noise PDF/EPUB Ë ¹ noise epub, Noise eBookThe history of noise the anthropology of ghosts and other illusive thingsWriting about the history of noise is like mapping the afterlife or studying the anthropology of ghosts entirely speculative and seeking to impose a sense of order on the random and a sense of the physical on the purely ethereal It is also entirely dependent upon how one chooses to define noise To me noise seems unintentional a byproduct; the author

    Epub David Hendy ¹ Noise PDF/EPUB Ë ¹ noise epub, Noise eBookNoise interests me a lot because I'm unduly sensitive to it even noises I make other than the music I listen to There's a bit of paradox in that in that I don't like people shouting for instance

    Epub David Hendy ¹ Noise PDF/EPUB Ë ¹ noise epub, Noise eBookThis was a thoroughgoing mediocrity of a book The topic is intriguing and there are some good factoids scattered throughout I enjoyed the discussions of prehistoric caves and how the artwork is often found in the most acoustically rich chambers Also good was the account of tricks employed by medieval church builders to convey majesty through sound However a lot of the insights tend towards the pedestrian especially as Hendy nears the

    Epub David Hendy ¹ Noise PDF/EPUB Ë ¹ noise epub, Noise eBookOverall it was an okay book I felt like some of the stories told were regurgitated from other recent works on the same subject But the author also cites and credits these works so he knew Also if it’s possible for a book to be over edited this might be a candidate I would have preferred depth for a lot chapters Instead it felt like the author got bored and moved on too uickly which I’m sure wasn’t the case The book tries to cover a lot of history so I’m sure it was edited down to something “consumable” Maybe an unabridged or
