An in-depth look at what everyday noise says about our culture and our communities - and how it affects our bodies and minds.
Marcia Jenneth Epstein is a musicologist and historian at the University of Calgary.
"Personal, descriptive, and filled with anecdotes and everyday life examples, Sound and Noise often addresses the reader in the second person, posing ethical questions and dilemmas and raising controversial issues. An excellent and provocative book." Barry Truax, Simon Fraser University and editor of Handbook for Acoustic Ecology
