<nofill>Dear List, I thought this information might be interesting for auditory research as this book contains a number of papers that deal with this topic from a musicological point of view. Thanks for your interest, Marc Leman $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Book Announcement: More information is available at = -----------------------------------------------------------------------------= ---------------------------- Title: =20 Music, Gestalt, and Computing-- Studies in Cognitive and Systematic Musicology Editor: Marc Leman (Email: Marc.Leman(at) Publisher: Springer-Verlag, 1997, pp. 524 Price:=20 98 DM </nofill> This book presents a coherent state-of-the-art survey on the area of systematic and cognitive musicology which has enjoyed dynamic growth now for many years. It is devoted to exploring the relationships between acoustics, human information processing, and culture, as well as to methodological issues raised by the widespread use of computers as powerful tools for theory construction, theory testing, and the manipulation of musical information or any kind of data manipulation related to music. This book comes with a CD providing sound examples for various chapters; it contains introductory survey contributions also accessible to the non-expert reader, a comprehensive name and subject index and the following technical chapters: 1. Gestalt theory revisited, 2. from pitch to harmony, 3. from rhythm to expectation, 4. from timbre to texture, 5. from musical expression to interactive computer systems. Most of the contributions included are thoroughly revised and reviewed versions of papers presented during the Joint International Conference on Cognitive and Systematic Musicology, held in Brugge, Belgium in September 1996. <nofill> List of Contents: -Introduction I.
