Musicologist and Historian at The University of Calgary, Marcia Jenneth Epstein has recently released her latest book, Sound and Noise: A Listener's Guide to Everyday Life, on McGill-Queen's University Press.
This book is about how you listen and what you hear, about how to have a dialogue with the sounds around you. Marcia Jenneth Epstein gives readers the impetus and the tools to understand the sounds and noise that define their daily lives in this groundbreaking interdisciplinary study of how auditory stimuli impact both individuals and communities.
Through its international award programme, Quiet Mark enables consumers to improve their domestic soundscapes and encourages industry to prioritise acoustics in the built environment; expertly testing and verifying solutions to noise problems to benefit health and well being.
Sound and Noise is a timely evaluation of the noise that surrounds us, how we hear it, and what we can do about it.
