Book Overview

Here is an original and exciting look at the fascinating world of sound and music. Superb real-life photographs of instruments ranging from zithers and panpipes to electric guitars and synthesizers offer a unique eyewitness view of ancient and contemporary music. See how strings vibrate to make a note sound, how an invisible column of air sounds a pipe, which instrument resembles a peacock, and how sousaphone players wear their instruments. Learn who invented an important new key system, how to master the bagpipes, why pipe organs have ears and mouths, and why French horns are doubled up. Discover how a vegetable gourd charms snakes, why tangled fingers led to the invention of the piano, why spiders add a buzz to xylophones, where reindeer toe-bones were used as whistles, and much, much more

The most trusted nonfiction series on the market, Eyewitness Books provide an in-depth, comprehensive look at their subjects with a unique integration of words and pictures.
