Product Description

Review

'This book describes a valuable piece of research and further enhances our understanding of the complex systems, perceptions and inter-relationships that impact on pupils, their families and schools and the differences and similarities of these between permanently excluded and non-excluded pupils.' - Debate

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a highly recommended, entertaining read. The instructions are clear and the projects can produce wonderful results.

This book is good if you are anxious to get started on a project and you want to make noise asap. There are about twenty or thirty projects that increase in difficulty, complexity and cost (e.g., more specialized parts, tools, components, etc). The projects can be independent, or can be sort of piggybacked and linked to create a few larger projects by the end if one were to follow the book sequentially (I did not). There are usually suggestions on how to expand each project, and the author always encourages the reader to experiment (though never with a wall socket!).

It is very light on theory, but the goal is noise and creative experimentation, not math. The author makes this clear from the beginning, but also points the reader in the right direction if he / she wants to know more.

The DVD is incredible. Little instruction videos by the author in his workshop; music; videos; art; weirdness. A unique collection almost worth the cost of the book itself.

This is the most valuable book that I have in my possession. The basic concepts which Collins brings to light, presented in such an accessible way, I have found no other text. If you read this book front to back you will have new ideas and if along the way you try to some of the projects you will have new skills.

The book outlines basics and provides documentation of sound artist work therein providing the practices of making work from the techniques provided. Great for people wanting to get some basic electronics made and work through ideas on their own.
