Okay, okay... I know I am supposed to study through the exams, but suddenly my career thoughts have taken a nosedive and I am Hung up between Madonna's a**cheeks ("puh-leeze" to those who will critique me as sexual..."as if you people don't..."). Anyway, I was going through my course material, and found something that just might be the first Instruction manual for sound mixing and DJs, RJs, VJs, and AJs..(cant remember any more Js). Read through the following exerpt... its pretty neat, though might be a tad boring.
............."We have also sound-houses, where we practise and demonstrate all sounds, and their generation. We have harmonies which you have not, of quarter-sounds, and lesser slides of sounds. Divers instruments of music likewise to you unknown, some sweeter than any you have, together with bells and rings that are dainty and sweet. We represent small sounds as great and deep; likewise great sounds extenuate and sharp; we make divers tremblings and warblings of sounds, which in their original are entire. We represent and imitate all articulate sounds and letters, and the voices and notes of beasts and birds. We have certain helps which set to the ear do further the hearing greatly. We have also divers strange and artificial echoes, reflecting the voice many times, and as it were tossing it: and some that give back the voice louder than it came, some shriller, and some deeper; yea, some rendering the voice differing in the letters or articulate sound from that they receive. We have also means to convey sounds in trunksand pipes, in strange lines and distances. SIR FRANCIS BACON --- THE NEW ATLANTIS
