Written for voice professionals, their teachers and those who care for their voices, this unique book covers voice acoustics, the effect of the acoustics of spaces on the voice, and how to make a voice recording properly. The book is wholly practical and written in a manner which is rooted in science but which is designed to enable understanding by non-scientists and voice practitioners alike.

The authors provide an outline of acoustics and the human voice, before going on to cover ways in which voice users - from professional and amateur singers and performers, through lawyers, to school teachers - the largest group reporting to clinics with vocal problems - can improve vocal efficiency, regardless of location, and vocal health. Also covered are methods of amplification, whether through microphones, or simply by posture or stance and best methods for sound recording.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

The acoustics of a space can have a real impact on the sounds you create and capture. Acoustics and Psychoacoustics, Fifth Edition provides supportive tools and exercises to help you understand how music sounds and behaves in different spaces, whether during a performance or a recording, when planning a control room or listening space, and how it is perceived by performers, listeners, and recording engineers.

With their clear and simple style, Howard and Angus cover both theory and practice by addressing the science of sound engineering and music production, the acoustics of musical instruments, the ways in which we hear musical sounds, the underlying principles of sound processing, and the application of these concepts to music spaces to create professional sound. This new edition is fully revised to reflect new psychoacoustic information related to timbre and temporal perception, including an updated discussion of vocal fold vibration principles, samples of recent acoustic treatments, and a description of variable acoustics in spaces, as well as coverage of the environment’s effect on production listening, sonification, and other topics.

Devoted to the teaching of musical understanding, an accompanying website (www.routledge.com/cw/howard) features various audio clips, tutorial sheets, questions and answers, and trainings that will take your perception of sound to the next level.

This book will help you:

Gain a basic grounding in acoustics and psychoacoustics with respect to music audio technology systems

Incorporate knowledge of psychoacoustics in future music technology system designs as appropriate

Understand how we hear pitch, loudness, and timbre

Learn to influence the acoustics of an enclosed space through designed physical modifications
