Though most of us know we love listening to music, we may not spend much time thinking about how this came to be, or the science, technology, engineering and mathematics that are crucial to its existence. This illustrated book explores all of this, starting with the basics - how does sound work? What is music? It details the progression of recorded music, from the phonograph to streaming, covers how everyday items like headphones were created, and includes a look at the science of how we experience music. Additionally, playlists accompany each topic, featuring a range of artists and multiple genres and styles.
