Paisajes Sonoros del Maestro Roncador

The Spanish Acoustic Society has published a book written by Francesc Daumal, as a contribution of the International Year of Sound 2020.

The book, entitled “Paisajes Sonoros del Maestro Roncador” (Sound Landscapes of the Snoring Professor), is a fun story that, through different episodes of the professor’s life, explains the fundamental principles of acoustics and soundscapes.

Francesc Daumal is an architect, professor at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and a member of the Spanish Acoustic Society.

Este libro se publica como continuación del titulado Maestro Roncador, editado por la Sociedad Española de Acústica en 2014, dentro de la colección “Temas de Acústica”. En él se desgranan los episodios más importantes de la vida del Maestro, que muestra a sus alumnos, en sus perturbadoras e inquietantes clases, las experiencias sonoras de la forma más práctica y atractiva que puede ofrecerse. Además, se describen episodios de la vida personal de la madurez y vejez del Maestro, desconocidos para el lector y que descubren de manera inequívoca su personalidad.

This book is the continuation of the previous book, Maestro Roncador, published by the Spanish Acoustical Society in 2014, within the collection “Temas de Acústica”. The book tells the most important episodes in the life of a professor (Maestro Roncador), which shows his students, in his unconventional classes, the sound experiences in the most practical and attractive way that can be done. In addition, episodes from the personal life of the maturity and old age of the professor are recounted, which unequivocally reveal his personality.
