20th Century Photographers

Interviews on the Craft, Purpose, and the Passion of Photography

By Grace Schaub

Edited by George Schaub

Focal Press – 2015 – 282 pages

This book is a compilation of interviews and
essays that cover a broad range of photographers and photographic
disciplines. Each photographer profiled made a living by concentrating
on a specific aspect of the craft, but in doing so transcended their
livelihood to become recognized for more than the type of images they
created. Each had a distinct “style,” creative approach, dedication to
the craft, point of view about themselves and the world.

These interviews were conducted during a seminal period in the shift
from film to digital and from print reproduction to global distribution
on the Internet. Just like their photographs continue to inspire today,
now these pros’ words can live on as an invaluable reference for the
photographers of the future. The truth and wisdom in this collection
transcend time and technology.

5th Edition

By David M. HowardJamie Angus

Routledge

510 pages

Description

The acoustics of a space can have a real impact on the sounds you create and capture. Acoustics and PsychoacousticsFifth Edition provides supportive tools and exercises to help you understand how music sounds and behaves in different spaces, whether during a performance or a recording, when planning a control room or listening space, and how it is perceived by performers, listeners, and recording engineers.

With their clear and simple style, Howard and Angus cover both theory and practice by addressing the science of sound engineering and music production, the acoustics of musical instruments, the ways in which we hear musical sounds, the underlying principles of sound processing, and the application of these concepts to music spaces to create professional sound. This new edition is fully revised to reflect new psychoacoustic information related to timbre and temporal perception, including an updated discussion of vocal fold vibration principles, samples of recent acoustic treatments, and a description of variable acoustics in spaces, as well as coverage of the environment’s effect on production listening, sonification, and other topics.

Devoted to the teaching of musical understanding, an accompanying website (www.routledge.com/cw/howard) features various audio clips, tutorial sheets, questions and answers, and trainings that will take your perception of sound to the next level.

This book will help you:

  • Gain a basic grounding in acoustics and psychoacoustics with respect to music audio technology systems
  • Incorporate knowledge of psychoacoustics in future music technology system designs as appropriate
  • Understand how we hear pitch, loudness, and timbre
  • Learn to influence the acoustics of an enclosed space through designed physical modifications
