Isle of Noises features brand-new, exclusive, in-depth conversations with twenty-seven of the UK's greatest living musicians. Artists discuss their individual approach to writing, the inspiration behind their most successful songs, and the techniques and methods they have independently developed. It is an incredible musical journey spanning fifty years, from 'Waterloo Sunset' by Ray Davies to 'The Beast' by Laura Marling, with many lyrical and melodic secrets revealed along the way. Original handwritten lyrics from personal archives and notebooks (many never-before-seen) offer a unique glimpse into the heart of the creative process, and some of the greatest names in photography, including Jill Furmanovsky, Pennie Smith and Sheila Rock, have contributed stunning portraits of each artist. The combination of individual personal insights and the breadth and depth of knowledge in their collected experience makes Isle of Noises the essential word on classic British songwriting - as told by the songwriters themselves.
Commissioned by l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Hatzis’s The Isle is Full of Noises is a fascinating work inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and the biblical allegory of Eden. Hatzis traces a regressive history of music as the trajectory of the work. The work begins with textural extended techniques and gradually transforms into melody and harmony, nodding to influences from Debussy and Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream along the way.

Electronic Noise and Interfering Signals is a comprehensive reference book on noise and interference in electronic circuits, with particular focus on low-noise design. The first part of the book deals with mechanisms, modelling, and computation of intrinsic noise which is generated in every electronic device. The second part analyzes the coupling mechanisms which can lead to a contamination of circuits by parasitic signals and provides appropriate solutions to this problem. The last part contains more than 100 practical, elaborate case studies. The book requires no advanced mathematical training as it introduces the fundamental methods. Moreover, it provides insight into computational noise analysis with SPICE and NOF, a software developed by the author. The book addresses designers of electronic circuits as well as researchers from electrical engineering, physics, and material science. It should also be of interest for undergraduate and graduate students.

"Literature and Weather. Shakespeare – Goethe – Zola" is dedicated to the relation between literature and weather, i.e. a cultural practice and an everyday phenomenon that has played very different epistemic roles in the history of the world. The study undertakes an archaeology of literature’s affinity to the weather which tells the story of literature’s weathery self-reflection and its creative reinventions as a medium in different epistemic and social circumstances.The book undertakes extensive close readings of three exemplary literary texts: Shakespeare’s The Tempest, Goethe’s The Sufferings of Young Werther and Zola’s The Rougon-Macquarts. These readings provide the basis for reconstructing three distinct formations, negotiating the relationship between literature and weather in the 17th, the 18th and the 19th centuries.The study is a pioneering contribution to the recent debates of literature’s indebtedness to the environment. It initiates a rewriting of literary history that is weather-sensitive; the question of literature’s agency, its power to affect, cannot be raised without understanding the way the weather works in a certain cultural formation.

The third and last book of the "Piebald Trilogy" finds world travelers, Piebald and Alpha, traveling to beautiful Ireland. There they will join with Joseph and Mary in the founding of an Irish Village where they will live with Irish Mice and teach them about The Great Creator God, maker of heaven and earth. The Irish Small Animal Village is built on a dairy farm owned by George and Lucy Woods. A neighbor of George and Lucy's is an Irish Schoolmaster, Mr. Maclaine, who put on classes for adults at George and Lucy's home. This year Mr. Maclaine's lessons will cover several topics that immediately captured Piebald's imagination, and mine! Piebald and Joseph were asked to come to Scotland and start a Scottish Village like the Irish Village. Red the Troll was actually living in Scotland but frequently visited Lepie at the Irish Village. Red encouraged Piebald to go to Scotland and start a Scottish Animal Village and he did just that. Red the Troll asked Piebald to let him teach history in the new Scottish School. Red would make an excellent Scottish history teacher he had lived hundreds of years in Scotland and he could teach with authority the long exciting history of Scotland without having to read history books. Lepie and Troll and Piebald and Alpha are invisible and waiting for a bus to take them to the International Airport in Belfast, Northern Ireland. This time there was no problem with transportation and in due time they walked into the American Small Animal Village to the cheers of American mice! Let the Celebration Begin! Dr. Gordon J.
