Audioarchive - d.h. Archive, die historische Tondokumente aufbewahren und dokumentieren - befinden sich in diesen Jahren in einer kritischen Phase: Ihre Bestände sind auf Tonträger gespeichert, die inzwischen nicht nur technisch veraltet sind (vor allem Tonbänder, aber auch Walzen, Kassetten, Schallplatten), sondern auch ihre Speicherqualität durch einen fortschreitenden, massiven Alterungsprozess in vielen Fällen eingebüßt haben. Nicht selten sind einzelne Dokumente bereits schwer geschädigt, und es besteht die akute Gefahr, dass umfangreiche Bestände unwiederbringlich verloren gehen. In den meisten Archiven ist diese Bedrohung längst erkannt worden, und aufwändige Datensicherungsmaßnahmen sind geplant oder man hat sie bereits durchgeführt. Fast immer sind solche Projekte mit einer Neuordnung, Sichtung und wissenschaftlichen Erschließung des Archivmaterials verbunden. Somit führen diese 'Rettungsaktionen' zu einer intensiveren Beschäftigung mit den Tondokumenten - was in der Regel zu einer Neubewertung der Archivbestände und nicht selten auch zu einer wissenschaftlichen Erforschung der Geschichte des jeweiligen Tonarchivs führt. In dieser Phase sind ein Erfahrungsaustausch und eine Zusammenarbeit zwischen Wissenschaftlern und Wissenschaftlerinnen, die mit diesen Herausforderungen konfrontiert sind, dringend geboten. Im vorliegenden Band sind die Beiträge einer Tagung über AV-Archive in Belgien, Dänemark, Deutschland, Niederlande, Österreich und der Schweiz veröffentlicht. In 14 Beiträgen werden Erfahrungen und Neuansätze bei der Dokumentation und Datensicherung wie auch bei der Erschließung und der wissenschaftlichen Nutzung der Tondokumente als Quelle vorgestellt.

"Ranging from pool hustling to pornography, this book analyzes deviant branches of American life, dispels misconceptions about them, and throws new light on sociological theory and method. Each chapter radically dissents from one or more mainstream opinions about deviance.The first chapter examines the alleged causes for the decline of American poolrooms and finds them wanting, traces the rise and fall of poolrooms to historical changes in America's social structure, and cogently dissects the recent poolroom revival. The second chapter, reports a field study of a deviant occupation, pool hustling, describing the hustler's work situation and career from recruitment to retirement. In revealing how pool hustlers, although dedicated wholly to a vocation that merely breaks unenforced gambling laws, frequently supplement their income by means of outright felonies, the author develops a new theory of "crime as moonlighting." The third chapter sharply criticizes our criminology textbooks for avoiding the study of uncaught adult criminals in their natural environments. It demonstrates such research to be both necessary and practical with career felons as well as moonlighters. The author describes field techniques he has used with career felons, offers new findings gleaned by means of these techniques, and answers moral objections to such research. The forth chapter presents the first genuinely empirical study of the beat delinquent sub-culture, in which the author corrects some journalistic views such as that most beats are exhibitionists and some sociological ones such as that "retreatist" drug-users can meet neither legitimate nor criminal success norms. The final chapter, on the sociology of pornography, holds that the courts are wrong to claim that naturalistic erotic art is non-pornographic, and wronger still to claim that hard-core pornography is, in Mr. Justice Brennan's words, "utterly without redeeming social importance."The author's unusual blend of"--Provided by publisher.

The Art of Recording articulates and explores the ways recorded sound is different from live sound, and how those differences can enhance music, including surround sound. It presents a system for developing the critical and analytical listening skills necessary to recognize and understand these sound characteristics--the same skills necessary to create quality recordings-- and for talking about or describing sound. The Art of Recording also considers audio recording as a creative process. The reader will learn to guide the artistry of music recording from its beginning as an idea, through its development during the many stages of the recording sequence, to its final form. Take a new and detailed look at many of the greatest recordings of The Beatles, offering insights into how the recording process shaped their music, and how you can gain control over the craft of making great recordings.

Breath sounds have long been important indicators of respiratory health and disease. Acoustical monitoring of respiratory sounds has been used by researchers for various diagnostic purposes. A few decades ago, physicians relied on their hearing to detect any symptomatic signs in respiratory sounds of their patients. However, with the aid of computer technology and digital signal processing techniques in recent years, breath sound analysis has drawn much attention because of its diagnostic capabilities. Computerized respiratory sound analysis can now quantify changes in lung sounds; make permanent records of the measurements made and produce graphical representations that help with the diagnosis and treatment of patients suffering from lung diseases. Digital signal processing techniques have been widely used to derive characteristics features of the lung sounds for both diagnostic and assessment of treatment purposes.Although the analytical techniques of signal processing are largely independent of the application, interpretation of their results on biological data, i.e. respiratory sounds, requires substantial understanding of the involved physiological system. This lecture series begins with an overview of the anatomy and physiology related to human respiratory system, and proceeds to advanced research in respiratory sound analysis and modeling, and their application as diagnostic aids. Although some of the used signal processing techniques have been explained briefly, the intention of this book is not to describe the analytical methods of signal processing but the application of them and how the results can be interpreted. The book is written for engineers with university level knowledge of mathematics and digital signal processing.

Introduction to Media Production began years ago as an alternative text that would cover ALL aspects of media production, not just film or just tv or just radio. Kindem and Musburger needed a book that would show students how every form of media intersects with one another, and about how one needs to know the background history of how film affects video, and how video affects working in a studio, and ultimately, how one needs to know how to put it all together. Introduction to Media Production is the book that shows this intersection among the many forms of media, and how students can use this intersection to begin to develop their own high quality work. Introduction to Media Production is a primary source for students of media. Its readers learn about various forms of media, how to make the best use of them, why one would choose one form of media over another, and finally, about all of the techniques used to create a media project. The digital revolution has exploded all the former techniques used in digital media production, and this book covers the now restructured and formalized digital workflows that make all production processes by necessity, digital. This text will concentrate on offering students and newcomers to the field the means to become aware of the critical importance of understanding the end destination of their production as a part of pre-production, not the last portion of post production. Covering film, tv, video, audio, and graphics, the fourth edition of Introduction to Media Production is a comprehensive guide for both students of media and newcomers to the media industry. Key Features * Covers all aspects of digital media production--from conception of the idea to the final end product * Introduces students to all forms of media: film, tv, video, audio, and graphics (other books focus mostly on one aspect) * Reinforces the importance for media artists and practitioners to be aware of the ultimate distribution and exhibition of their media products from the outset of the project * Completely revised to show the new theories, practices, and examples involved in an entirely digital world * Updated Instructors' Manual with PowerPoint slides for lecture use, teaching notes, test questions, essay topics, and math problems
