Nyre, Lars


An introduction to sound media from Marconi to MP3, or rather from MP3 to Marconi, as the author adopts a backwards chronology. The book opens with a theoretical chapter to provide a framework for the historical discussion that follows, starting with the 21stcentury soundscape, and working backwards to the development of broadcast technologies in the 1870s. Lars Nyre also traces the development of theories that attempted to understand the new audio media, and his book will make a particular argument about realism and sound, both in terms of the truthfulness of sound reproduction to the original sound - hence the 'fidelity' of the title - and listeners' beliefs about the 'realism' of what they hear.Nyre, Lars is the author of 'Sound Media: From Live Journalism to Musical Recording', published 2008 under ISBN 9780415391139 and ISBN 041539113X.
