[Csnd] Spectral Music by Victor Lazzarini is available at half price on Amazon

Apologies if this is off topic, but I figured this would be useful to at least a few people here.

I had to read the message twice. On first reading I wondered if it was referring to a composition of spectral music. On the second reading, the penny dropped: you are referring to the book that is literally on my lap: finally found time to read it. I expect to read it more than once, and refer to it for years to come. Highly recommended.

All the best,


Ah yes I can see how that could have been confusing :slight_smile:

Just ordered a copy, supposed to be here tomorrow. Yeah,… half price, nice.


+1 on it being a great book! I also recommend it widely. :slight_smile:


Just got 4-minutes ago, thumbing thru it quickly, then back to work,…

… very good. I’m going to enjoy this one. Good review of audio, and covers

details I hadn’t considered before.

Very good Victor.


Thanks, Partev.

And I haven’t found any Taylor series typos yet, so even better. Sunglasses


Victor’s incredibly new book - Spectral Music Design - is the required text for my DSP (EP413) class at Berklee & for my Advanced Project Thesis Prep class too (EP401 and EP491)


That’s great to hear, thanks for adopting it.

i finally received my copy, too. what a fantastic book, collecting so many aspects of this area, and digging deeply. the python code examples are extremely instructive. congrats!!!

i was wondering whether there could be (or is already?) a repo with the code examples, similar to what we did in the springer csound book.

best -

yes, I should do this soon. It was supposed to be hosted by OUP, but in the end they did not do it.
