5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly recommend this book 1 juin 2006
Par Jan - Publié sur Amazon.com
We just received a copy of From Mud to Music book and CD, sent to us because we have photos in it. Therefore we hoped we'd like it; also inclined to be hyper critical if we didn't. We are delighted with it.

This is a beautiful, large format book with hundreds of color photos of clay musical instruments from around the world, contemporary and ancient. The text is very readable and conveys the author's enthusiasm for his subject. Just to see the variety of forms and types of instruments is fascinating. Who would have imagined a clay violin, pipe organ or hybrid fiddle/didjeridu/drum? (Someone, obviously.)

The information includes history, descriptions of the instruments and how they work, and lots of how-to.

The CD has a good variety of music samples, with a track list and appendix in the book describing each cut, as well as references to photos of the instruments. The photos also have references to the CD. It is well organized, with cross references, glossary, index, resources list, and contributors contact info.

This is one of the best pottery books we've ever seen. We think it will become a classic and should create quite a stir among clay artists and musicians.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Percussionist, musician, or music-lover - this is a "Must Have" work 12 juin 2006
Par C. Spano - Publié sur Amazon.com
As someone with a penchant for percussion instruments, especially those of the "unusual" type, I had been enthralled by the haunting sounds of the Udu for some time but material on actual playing techniques is virtually non-existent - the name Barry Hall kept coming up in my quest for some actual/viewable techniques - I had found a number of Udu makers and had acquired various instruments but was still looking for more info - I finally went to Barry Hall's website, obtained the instructional DVD, and found that Barry was involved with a lot more than just Udu's - through Barry's website, CD's, and video, I was unexpectedly introduced to a whole new world of ceramic instruments, many of which were unknown (and thus intriguing as to their musical capabilities) to me - a whole new world of incredible sounds and possibilities!

And then comes "The Book" - "Mud to Music" - what an apt title. From the get-go, this large volume stands out as to it's quality and the incredible amount of work, time, and love of music and ceramics that had to have gone into this work. No cheap glossy paper dust-cover for this volume -this hard cover book is first class all the way, from the full color front all the way through to the back cover - LOTS of great color photographs, great indexing, and historical/contemporary info with the articles on the various instrument artisans and the "how-to" sections just superb - this book has it all and opens up a whole new arena of possibilities for those musically inclined. This book was obviously a labor of love by a master artisan who settled for nothing short of the best. The accompanying CD is icing on the cake so to speak!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful Coffee Table Book 30 juin 2008
Par Cindy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
If you're looking for an art piece, this is the book for you. I was hoping for a little more instruction. It is a beautiful book and I would probably buy it anyway even if I had known how little practical knowledge is actually offered. Most of the instruments could probably be figured out by a fairly competent ceramist, but a beginner would be completely lost.

I was disappointed not to be given cross-section diagrams of some of the wind instruments; I would have liked some more and more specific technical info on creating a clay xylophone and/or marimba; I'd like to know more about stretching drum heads and stringing/playing the bowed instruments and harps. That said, I can probably figure it out, but that's why I bought this book. To help me figure it out.

Conversely, in the section in which Hall does give step by step procedures, he includes simple steps that even the 6-year-olds in my pottery classes know how to do. Nothing about firing techniques or the rest of the stuff ceramists seem to feel obligated to include in a book written for beginners, though, for which I am grateful. Any beginning potter needs a general instruction text (or a good class), so I'm not sure why specialty authors feel it necessary to include basic steps and then, for want of space, leave out stuff you'd really like to know.

Sorry for whining so much. I really love the book and have been reading it word for word (some of it is pretty silly kind of psycho-babble, so you've been warned) to glean every bit of info. It's spangled with little stars of knowledge and I don't want to miss any of them.

As others have said, this isn't really a studio book. It's too nice, and hasn't got all that much practical information anyway, unless you've never made an ocarina or can't figure out on your own how to make a goblet drum. (Thanks for the instructions on fitting the head, though.) It will give you loads of inspiration, and if you understand the different ways of making a sound, which are really explained quite adequately, you'll be able to figure out at least a rudimentary model of most of the instruments shown.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic must-have for art lovers, musicians and ceramists 11 juin 2006
Par Hester Heuff - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is both beautifull and full of practical and interesting information about clay-instrument-making and about music, both contemporary and ancient. The CD alone is well worth the price of the book and a delight to the ear, the book is of interest not only to makers but also to any music enthhousiast. It is very well layed out and there are cross references for each music track to the clay instruments making the sounds. It is educational to both teachers and students alike, in the specific and general sense. It will be a classic in years to come and is a must-have for anyone interested in ceramics or music. It is also full of beautifull objects and would satisfy anyone interested in art for its own sake.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful! 23 juin 2006
Par Janie Tubbs - Publié sur Amazon.com
I first made my purchase because I had a couple of my photos included in the book. But when I opened it up, it took my breath away! Not only are the photos well done and well laid out, but there is historical information about clay instruments, as well as information about currently made clay instruments. There are also pages of 'how to' for those so inclined. There is information about various artists. I thought it was of such value that I have purchased a copy for the Bethany College Art Department's ceramic instructor. There is a wealth of knowledge in this one book! I highly recommend owning one! Kudo's to Barry Hall!
