by Nick Coleman (Author)

  • Heartbreaking in its genesis, Voices was a project started by the author when he learned that he would soon lose his hearing and become completely deaf. This book is "a harvest and a storage" of the emotional and psychological responses to the human voice in song that Coleman sought to preserve for himself, and a wider meditation on why vocal music––particularly post-war popular music––is such an important part of our lives
  • Voices explores the way we internalise others' voices in the interests of our own development/happiness/understanding of the world––a largely unconscious process but a vivid one for all that. And a psychologically private one. In other words, it's a book about the intimacy of our deepest, most telling relationships with music
