There is more to sound recording than just recording sound. Far from being simply a tool for the preservation of music, the technology is a catalyst. This is the clear message of Capturing Sound, a wide-ranging, deeply informative, consistently entertaining history of recording's profound impact on the musical life of the past century, from Edison to the Internet.
In a series of case studies, Mark Katz explores how recording technology has encouraged new ways of listening to music, led performers to change their practices, and allowed entirely new musical genres to come into existence. An accompanying CD, featuring thirteen tracks from Chopin to Public Enemy, allows readers to hear what Katz means when he discusses music as varied as King Oliver's "Dippermouth Blues," a Jascha Heifetz recording of a Brahms Hungarian Dance, and Fatboy Slim's "Praise You."

"This thoughtful and well-written book goes to the front rank of publications on the phonograph and other sound reproduction technologies. Employing a wide variety of methodologies and sources and covering a broad range of music and practices, Katz provides a model of how studies of music and technology should be done."—Tim Taylor, author of Global Pop: World Music, World Markets and Strange Sounds: Music, Technology and Culture
"I only wish I had put as much thought into making records as Mark Katz does in appreciating and analyzing them. I've always said that what I do is not rocket science but critiques like this make it sound like it has a place in modern culture."—Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, composer, producer, DJ
Mark Katz is Assistant Professor of Music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
