Pressestimmen

"A wise and loving owner's manual for anybody who has ears. Mathieu offers a rare opportunity to re-discover a rich and often neglected channel that links our inner self with the world."—Keyboard Magazine



"A practical and in-depth guide to the vastness of the mysticism of sound. It is also beautifully written. It is poetic, humorous, loving and confrontational—it is filled with the child's curiosity and it is filled with love for life—and it is contagious."—The Sound



"In this collection of short, evocative essays, [Mathieu] offers playful and powerful suggestions for awakening to the music that is always around us and inside us. . . . His infectious passion for the melodies and rhythms of everyday life shimmers on every page."—Yoga Journal



"In this age of the couch potato, squatting bug-eyed at the boob-tube, this is a book on behalf of the unregenerate ear-minded person's protest against the eye-minded majority. . . . Mathieu offers suggestions and encouragement on many aspects of music-making, and provides playful exercises to help readers appreciate the connection between sound, music, and everyday life."—Spiritual Frontiers

"The Listening Book is a true gift for music-makers of any stripe, It offers us not only the insights of a master teacher and the instincts of a great musician, but it radiates with that wonderful quality of a man who wears his soul on his sleeve."—Paul Winter, composer and musician

"The Listening Book is a remarkable and exciting work. An obvious labor of love, every page sings of the joys of life and music. Mathieu's observations and perceptions are insightful, incisive and often startling. This is a book that could change the way we view music, and which would be of benefit to everyone from the casual listener or performer to the professional musician."—David N. Baker, Distinguished Professor of Music and Chairman, Jazz Department, Indiana University School of Music

5.0 von 5 Sternen Opening your ears 15. Dezember 1999
Von Bill Haas
Format:Taschenbuch
I have a degree in music composition plus some graduate hours. Out of all the books I've read on music both in and out of music school, this one out shines them all. Mr Mathieu shows us how to listen to everyday sounds and find the music that is there. He helps us open our ears with simple excersises that are fun and flexible. Its not theory. Its not rules. Mr Mathieu gives us the gift of his own experiences in beautifuly written prose. His serves as a guide that leads us to our own experiences; discovering our own unique music. No one ever taught me how to listen before. Thank you Mr Mathieu.

I have shared this book with friends, students, colleagues, and total strangers over the years. Everyone can find him- or herself in its pages. Mathieu, a fine composer and teacher, wants to help us all tap into music in a more rewarding and spiritually nourishing way. He accomplishes this with little stories about how to listen, how to practice, and how to tune your mind so that it will be ready for the sounds you haven't heard yet. Don't think twice, it's all right--buy this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Your ears will thank you 25. Mai 2001
Von Shane Carey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
W.A. Mathieu is utterly in love with vibrating air molecules, and this thoughtful, warm, and fun collection of short essays is bound to impart some of that to you. This is not a book about composition, about developing your own personal style or anything of that sort. It is a way of focusing on and developing your relationship with your ears, with sound, with what sounds good to you in music and in nature and in all of the world, both inside and outside of your head. In playful exercises for musicians and non-musicians alike, we examine the nature of a single note played on an instrument, or sung alound, or even just a series of spoken or drawn-out syllables. There are ways to bring music into a group of people; there are ways to draw it out of inanimate objects; there are ways to find it in silence. He's not trying to convince anybody that traffic, barking dogs, and 3 AM garbage trucks are as beautiful as a Bach piece; some things will sound better to you than others. But practice makes perfect: if you practice hearing, you will hear more, and you will hear better, and you will find more things that sound good, and you will get a richer enjoyment of them. This is "Discovering Your Own Music."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A MUST HAVE for anyone - musician or otherwise! 16. August 2000
Von Rick Cyge - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This inspirational book shares a unique and exciting perspective on the process of music making and the beauty of discovering rhythm and melody in our natural envireonment. If you can get your hands on it, his self-narrated cassette audio book version of this title is even better. He is an enthralling storyteller! Get a few copies - give one to a friend!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Who knew you could LEARN to hear better? 18. Mai 2009
Von Shazam - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I stumbled on this book was intrigued enough to add it to an order of CDs I was buying. I couldn't put it down once I opened it. I even took a "sick day" from work just so I could be alone in the house to do many of the exercises without interruption. Ahh yes, the exercises - those alone make this book worth its weight in diamonds. Music that has been as familiar to me as my own face is suddenly new and alive. Music that I was never interested in or "got" was now open to me. Anything and everything that makes sound can be interesting now that I've learned to quiet my mind and listen...really listen. This book has become as important to my life as the best albums in my music collection.

Everyone can benefit from what is in this book. Master musicians, casual music fans, teenagers with iPods, grandparents with diminished hearing, even audiophiles can learn to open their ears and open their minds to the world of music around them.
