A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Programming, Playing, and Recording the Ultimate Electronic Music Instrument Includes a companion website Explains the important developments throughout the history of the synthesizer Describes how engineers, musicians, and visionaries have advanced its capabilities Gives important practical tips on choosing a synthesizer Reveals the deep creativity and imagination of those who work with synthesizers Thoroughly illustrated with over 350 imagesElectronic music instruments werent called synthesizers until the 1950s, but their lineage began in 1919 with Russian inventor Lev Sergeyevich Termen´s development of the Etherphone, now known as the Theremin. From that point, synthesizers have undergone a remarkable evolution from prohibitively large mid-century models confined to university laboratories to the development of musical synthesis software that runs on tablet computers and portable media devices.Throughout its history, the synthesizer has always been at the forefront of technology for the arts. In The Synthesizer: A Comprehensive Guide to Understanding, Programming, Playing, and Recording the Ultimate Electronic Music Instrument, veteran music technology journalist, educator, and performer Mark Vail tells the complete story of the synthesizer: the origins of the many forms the instrument takes; crucial advancements in sound generation, musical control, and composition made with instruments that may have become best sellers or gone entirely unnoticed; and the basics and intricacies of acoustics and synthesized sound. Vail also describes how to successfully select, program, and play a synthesizer; what alternative controllers exist for creating electronic music; and how to stay focused and productive when faced with a room full of instruments. This one-stop reference guide on all things synthesizer also offers tips on encouraging creativity, layering sounds, performance, composing and recording for film and television, and much more.Readership: Existing synthesists and newcomers to the industry; teachers, professors, and students in universities, colleges, high schools, and middle schools who are interested in electronic music; and manufacturers, dealers, consultants, journalists, authors, owners, performers, composers, improvisers, engineers, producers, and recordists in the electronic-music and electro-acoustic industries.The specification in this catalogue, including without limitation price, format, extent, number of illustrations, and month of publication, was as accurate as possible at the time the catalogue was compiled.

In May 1373, the English mystic Julian of Norwich was healed of a serious illness after experiencing a series of visions of the Blessed Virgin and of Christ´s suffering. Her account, A Revelation of Love, is considered one of the most remarkable documents of medieval religious experience. In Julian of Norwich and the Mystical Body Politic of Christ, Frederick Bauerschmidt provides a close and historically sensitive study of Julian´s Revelation of Love that addresses the relationship between our understanding of God and our vision of human community. By locating Julian´s images of Christ´s body within the context of late medieval debates over the nature and extent of divine power, Bauerschmidt argues that Julian presents an alternative account of divine power in which the crucified body of Christ becomes the locus and shape of divine omnipotence. For Julian, divine power serves as the norm of all human exercise of power, rendering the possibility of the ´´mystical body politic of Christ´´ as the exemplary form of human community. Julian of Norwich and the Mystical Body Politic of Christ is a remarkable achievement of synthesis between a theological-political analysis of distinct contemporary relevance and historical faithfulness to Julian´s own 14th century world. 1.
