Daphne Oram — “An Individual Note of Music, Sound, and Electronics”


It’s the kind of book that I grabbed mostly because it looked beautiful and its title features words I like to see on the covers of books: Music; Sound; Electronics. It more than satisfies the cover’s premise by explaining, in some depth, how sounds are produced, augmented, amplified, and encoded by electronics, and along the way manages to weave in incredible metaphors and (albeit sometimes dated) observations of human life.
