Whenever the pressure of air is changed rapidly-by the beating of a drum, rattling a stick in a can, plucking a string stretched across a box-the ear-brain system detects the pressure changes as sound, which travels from source to listener as sound waves. This program examines sound waves: why some sounds are musical and others just noise, and the relationship of regularity or irregularity of vibration to the perception of musicality, as well as such nonscientific questions as the cultural content of musical perception

Hector Berlioz : Symphonie fantastique( Visual )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'I feel, therefore I am.' For Hector Berlioz, and for the Romantic movement he personified, those were words to live by. But with the unprecedented outpouring of emotion in his Symphonie fantastique he almost overpowered Paris. This orchestral sonic spectacular, written to win the heart of a beautiful actress, demanded sacrifice from its author and his audience. From romantic daydreams to deadly displays of devotion, the symphony relates an 'episode in the life of an artist, ' that artist being the love-obsessed composer himself. Join Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony as they follow Berlioz to the brink in this episode of Keeping Score"--Container
