Waterstones Says

A hugely entertaining mash-up of music and science, Mainwaring's truly fascinating volume traces the waves of frequency through time and space, taking in out-of-tune whales, rats' whiskers and rainbows along the way.

Vic Tandy was a level-headed scientist, but there was no denying it: at this late hour in his lonely lab at Coventry University, he kept seeing a grey apparition out of the corner of his eye. Bathed in a cold sweat, his heart pounding in his chest, he questioned his own rational mind - could this really be a supernatural encounter? What on Earth could be sending such an eerie shudder through his body?

Strange frequencies are all around us - in fact, there may be no limit to the marvellous power of vibration. So catch a wave with musical adventurer Richard Mainwaring and take a wild ride across the keys of his infinite piano. Along the way, you'll join the quest for the world's loneliest whale, whose tragically out-of-tune song has haunted oceanographers for decades. You'll discover what strange melodies are hidden in rats' whiskers and rainbows. And you'll find out how vibrations good and bad govern more or less everything around you.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'How can a book about sound, vibration and frequency be so enthralling, entertaining and informative? Once you start reading this utterly fascinating book it is nigh impossible to put it down. Richard Mainwaring is a master story-teller and communicator who whisks us into his world of child-like curiosity, unleashing stories from what can often be perplexing subjects. From frequencies of tsunamis, ghosts, rainbows to many aspects of our everyday lives, the author provides countless entry points to help us understand the sound world we live in. This is a gem' - Dame Evelyn Glennie

'Truly an eye opener, rewarding you with many 'oh my god I never knew that' moments' - Producer Steve Levine
