  Art of Immersive Soundscapes
What is an immersive soundscape? It can be as simple as a recording made in a forest: leaves crunching underfoot, birds chirping, a squirrel chattering. Or it can be as complex as a movie soundtrack, which involves music but also uses many other sounds—to set the mood for the action and to literally put the viewer in the picture. Sound art defies categorization, and artists using this medium describe their work in many different ways: as sound installations, audio art, radio art, and music.

In Finding McLuhan, his biographer, his sons, and sixteen scholars explore the many ways in which he was, indeed, right.

The volume concludes with interviews with Douglas Coupland, Eric McLuhan, and Michael McLuhan, who provide intimate glimpses into McLuhan as friend, colleague, husband, and father.
