Barry Truax is a very well-known composer in the field of computer music, both for different works composed with the computer, both for the research carried out since the Seventies around the development of POD software and for the implementation of granular synthesis in real time. The seventies also saw Barry Truax engaged alongside Murray Schafer, whose activity and reflection on the theme of the soundscape are, in my opinion, one of the areas most interesting on the contemporary research on sound. Acoustic Communication, then, is a book that connects all major phases of the career of Canadian composer. Certainly is not accidental that the book has been structured in two parts, the first of which focused on the soundscape, and the second on the impact of technology on it. The relationship between the text of Schafer and that of Truax is very tight.
