HOW MUSIC WORKS
Photobucket
BY JOHN POWELL

OCTOBER 27th to NOVEMBER 6th

SYNOPSIS:
HOW MUSIC WORKS
The Science and Psychology of Beautiful Sounds, from Beethoven to the Beatles and Beyond
by John Powell
What makes a musical note different from any other sound? How can you tell if you have perfect pitch? Why do 10 violins sound only twice as loud as one? Do your Bob Dylan albums sound better on CD or vinyl? John Powell, a scientist and musician, answers these questions and many more in HOW MUSIC WORKS, an intriguing and original guide to acoustics. In a clear, accessible, and engaging voice, Powell fascinates the reader with his delightful descriptions of the science and psychology lurking beneath the surface of music.  With lively discussions of the secrets behind harmony, timbre, keys, chords, loudness, musical composition,
and more, HOW MUSIC WORKS will be treasured by music lovers everywhere.

My mother, who did play the piano, signed me up for music lessons when I was a child. I knew I was in trouble when I learned my music teacher's name was Mrs. Schmuck. I had a difficult time concentrating and sitting still so after about 3 years of pain and agony, my mother let me stop. Now I wish I played.

No I don't play, but I so very wish I could! I am entranced by the sound of a violin and would love to be able to play. I really admire people who can.
