Re: In search of Basic Pedagogical Audio Material

I'm still working on the book - sorry for the delay.


Further to this I'm interested to know about the availability of 'Ear and
Brain: How We Make Sense of Sounds'.

 Dear Olivier,

 I have two CDs out which illustrate various
 principles of perceptual organization for sound
 and music. These are entitled 'Musical Illusions
 and Paradoxes' and 'Phantom Words, and Other
 Curiosities'. I routinely play demonstrations
 from these CDs in large introductory classes, and
 they are very well received by the students. The
 CDs are available through
 http://www.philomel.com. Some of the the sound
 demonstrations are also posted on this website,
 and some others are posted on

 Please let me know if you'd like any further information.

 Best regards,
