The Science and Psychology of Beautiful Sounds, from Beethoven to the Beatles and Beyond
 by John Powell
From the Publisher:
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.
About the Author:
John Powell holds a PhD in physics from Imperial College at London University. He has taught physics at the University of Nottingham and the University of Lulea in Sweden. In 2003, he earned a master’s degree in music composition from the University of Sheffield in Great Britain.
