Charles Taylor is a natural communicator of scientific ideas … I recommend the book strongly

Charles Taylor is a natural communicator of scientific ideas … I recommend the book strongly. Taylor has written a charming book on the connections between physics and music, presented with a distinctive British flavour and perspective. Anders Askenfelt, Physics World. Paperback: 255 pages.

Lavishly illustrated, Exploring Music: The Science and Technology of Tones and Tunes explains in a nonmathematical way the underlying science of music, musical instruments, tones, and tunes. The author explores the magical quality and science of music, facilitating pleasure and the understanding in both young and older readers. Based primarily on the highly successful seri Lavishly illustrated, Exploring Music: The Science and Technology of Tones and Tunes explains in a nonmathematical way the underlying science of music, musical instruments, tones, and tunes.

Not only that physicist Charles Taylor approaches the technical details of producing music from all kinds of instruments, but the way that this two concepts, music and science, are merged it is done in such a manner that it facilitates the understanding in both young and older readers. The book is structured in six chapters, each being divided in different subjects related to the leading one given by the title of each chapter.

Charles Alfred Taylor (1922–2002) was a British physicist well known for his work in crystallography and his efforts to promote science to young audiences. Charles Taylor was born in Hull in 1922. Charles Taylor was born in Hull in 1922

Lavishly illustrated, Exploring Music: The Science and Technology of Tones and Tunes explains in a nonmathematical way the underlying science of music, musical instruments, tones, and tunes. The author explores the magical quality and science of music, facilitating pleasure and the understanding in both young and older readers. Based primarily on the highly successful series of Christmas lectures given by the author in 1989-1990 at the Royal Institution, this book contains an expanded version of what he demonstrated to live audiences in excess of 2,000 as well as over 10 million television viewers.
  • I remember seeing the original Christmas lectures when I was younger and was delighted to be able to find this book after all this time. Probably the best Christmas lectures ever given! The book takes a scientific look into sound and music. From what makes a simple electronic note to what gives and instrument its characteristic tone, the book also explains acoustics, resonance, and what exactly sound is. There are many fascinating insights into the world of sound with some simple but wonderful experiments that help someone to "picture" what is going on. The book is well written and easy to understand by someone of any age! Highly recommended for anyone, but particularly for a scientist curious about sound and music or a musician wondering what lies behind their art!

  • It is a good book, very good for theorists.
    However, I ran across a statement in the book I think may be wrong and am asking other viewers of this to help settle if I am correct or mistaken....
    Toward the end of section 1.5 Pitch and Frequency, it states that the organ pipe with a stop at 2 and 2/3 will produce the 12th interval, an octave and a fifth. I tend to think that a stop (or length) of 3 and not 2 2/3 is the twelfth. I think that if length one is fundamental with, say a frequency of 100, length 2 is 200, the octave, then 2/3 with frequency 150 is the fifth. Doubling this will yield the octave plus the fifth, will it not, which is 300, the length of 3?
    I am thinking 2 and 2/3 is the octave plus a forth....1.3333333 x 2 = 2.66666666 or 2 2/3.
    Am I mixed up?

  • I bought this book after it was reviewed in "The New Scientist" and I certainly wasn't dissapointed. It's very well organised and even though quite thin, it covers everything in requisite depth. For e.g. he does a great job on explaining the origin of the currently used scales etc.
