The bookBut I feel that there s a lot left out At most there s only minimal discussion of the actual construction of the tape works and the techniues involved The coverage of the pre synthesizer euipment and electronics used in the studio was severely lacking #too the author keeps bringing up this amazing glowpot mixer but never actually says what it was or #the author keeps bringing up this amazing glowpot mixer but never actually says what it was or Additionally there is very little in the way *of context outside of the workshop what was going on at other electronic *context outside of the workshop what was going on at other electronic studios where were other electronic adiotvfilm scores being composed I think this sort of content would help the book tremendously making it eadable and interesting to a wider group of Les désastreuses Aventures des Orphelins Baudelaire : Les posters pessimistissimes readersAs an academic document or for those interested in the history and theory of film music I imagine that this would be an excellent book But for those interested in what the workshop composers and engineers did and how they did it the book sadly falls short great well written book about that special sound.
