B. J. Murray, CHOICE In all, this is a fascinating, provocative book from a curious author . . . There is nothing quite like it out there.
Journal of the American Musicological Society Music at Hand makes an important and timely contribution to the broader intellectual project of consilience in music studies, showing vividly what we stand to gain by listening across the epistemological gap to the burgeoning sciences of the mind.
Journal of Music Theory De Souza's eye-, ear-, and finger-opening Music at Hand shows us the way into this world of human-machine interdependency. Once we have absorbed its many fruitful lessons, there will be not the faintest whiff of paradox when we declare that we hear with our hands.
Jonathan De Souza is an assistant professor in the Don Wright Faculty of Music at the University of Western Ontario. He holds a Ph.D. in music theory and history from the University of Chicago. De Souza is also an active multi-instrumentalist, playing classical music, folk music, and jazz.
