Das Buch Der Kl Nge from the Author: Trevor Cox. Mit dem Buch der Klänge führt uns der britische Wissenschaftler Trevor Cox in verborgene Hörwelten. Es weckt in uns das Verlangen, in einem Alltag, in dem das Visuelle so sehr dominiert, doch einmal genauer hinzuhören – und unsere Ohren für das wunderbare Klangdurcheinander um uns herum zu öffnen. Als Fachmann für technische Akustik hat sich Trevor Cox lange damit beschäftigt, unerwünschte Geräusche verschwinden zu lassen, ob Echos in Konzertsälen oder Lärm in Klassenzimmern. Eines Tages aber verschaffte ihm ein Ausflug in die Londoner Kanalisation ein erstaunliches Hörerlebnis – und die Erkenntnis: Statt seltsame Geräusche abzustellen, sollten wir die seltsamsten und bizarrsten akustischen Effekte zu schätzen lernen: als die Klangwunder unserer Erde. Das Buch der Klänge beschreibt seine Suche nach diesen Klangwundern. In der Mojave-Wüste besucht Cox singende Dünen. In Frankreich entdeckt er ein Echo, das zu Scherzen aufgelegt ist. In Kalifornien fährt er eine „singende“ Straße entlang, die die Ouvertüre zu Wilhelm Tell erklingen lässt (wenn auch ziemlich schief). Und eine Entdeckung ist so beeindruckend, dass sie einen Eintrag ins Guinness-Buch der Rekorde verdient hat.

Sonic Wonderland from the Author: Trevor Cox. As an acoustic engineer, Trevor Cox has spent his career eradicating unwanted noises – echoes in concert halls, clamour in classrooms. Until the day he heard something so astonishing that he had an epiphany: rather than quashing rare or bizarre sounds, we should be celebrating these sonic treasures. This is the story of his investigation into the mysteries of these Sonic Wonders of the World. In the Mojave Desert he finds sand dunes that sing. In France he discovers an echo that tells jokes. In California he drives down a musical road that plays the William Tell Overture. In Cathedrals across the world he learns how acoustics changed the history of the Church. Touching on physics, music, archaeology, neuroscience, biology, and design, Cox explains how sound is made and altered by the environment and how our body reacts to peculiar noises – from the exotic sonic wonders he encounters on his journey, or the equally unique and surprising sounds of our everyday environment. In a world dominated by the visual, Sonic Wonderland encourages us to become better listeners and to open our ears to the glorious cacophony around us.

Hiking Southern New England from the Author: Rhonda Ostertag. "Michael Goodman is, by all accounts, just that: a good man. But he's also recently widowed, out of work, deep in debt, and unable to pay the mounting medical bills for his seriously ill daughter. So when he accidentally finds a bundle of narcotics in Florida and gets nowhere in his attempts to turn it in to the local police, he returns home to New York City with plans to convert the load to cash." "Along the way to making a fortune, Goodman and his young daughter Kelly befriend a pretty former prostitute, and together they encounter New York thugs, a host of law enforcement sleuths, and Florida drug lords who have no qualms about killing in order to recover what Goodman wants to sell. Eventually, all of the players converge in a collision that is at once harrowing and hysterically funny."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
