Introduces an exciting approach to musical listening, perception and playing, demonstrating to the reader the exciting world of sound and texture. The author discusses musical structures as if they are three-dimensional spaces which can be walked through. Referring to listening examples from a wide range of cultures and styles -- rock and roll, jazz, classical, folk, world and contemporary music -- Musical Environments takes the reader on a sumptuous journey into a wide range of sound worlds which are experienced, discussed and analysed. Each chapter is accompanied with listening examples, improvisation and composition exercises. Users simply apply the manual to their own context and needs. A must for classroom education, tertiary music courses or the individual wishing to understand musical structures more deeply.
