Summary
In prehistoric caves, drummers used natural acoustics to recreate natural sound. In classical Europe, orators turned the human voice into a lyrical instrument. And in Buddhist temples, the icons' ears were exaggerated to represent their spiritual power. In a narrative history of the subject which puts humans at its centre, David Hendy reveals the six different ages of sound and what it was like to live through them
