Reviews - What do customers think about The Fundamentals of Sonic Arts and Sound Design (Fundamentals)?

GENERAL book on the uses of sound in art, etc.  Apr 21, 2008
This book is a fine, general HISTORICAL overview of more current uses of sound in its many different (mostly ARTISTIC) forms (though, many other volumes from the MIT Press are even better). It is NOT a book on "noise" qua signal processing or information theory or anything of that sort of technical nature. It's more of a history book for art history students (and others) interested in the sonic arts, or art forms that utilize sound to a great degree.

If you want a more techie kind of thing then, of course, don't buy this book...go to the more mathematically-based volumes on the (correct) subject matter and dive in (P.S. for the other reviewer; don't rip on a book for being something that it wasn't even trying to be in the first place. And, for the record, sound is not simply "noise"...go check out the work of John Cage).
Baby's first noise book.  Apr 7, 2008
This title is the noise book no one who is interested in noise should buy. Written as a history-lite book it is filled with photos & neato graphics & no damn footnotes. Please do not reward this paper-thin infotainment. Noise is too important (& not important at all) to be written poorly about. P.s. the computer made me give a star when I feel the title rates none.
