An excerpt from the beginning of the INTRODUCTION:

1. Sound is the effect on the ear of a wavelike (undulatory) motion of an elastic medium, caused by the vibrations of an elastic body.

2. When the vibrations occur at regular intervals, and the waves are therefore of equal length, a musical sound is produced.

3. Musical sounds differ from each other (independently of their duration) in intensity, character, and pitch, - determined respectively by the extent, form, and frequency of the vibrations.

4. Intensity, which depends on the extent of the vibrations, regulates the loudness or softness of a sound.

5. Character, which is also called quality or complexion (French timbre, 'stamp'; German klangfarbe, 'sound-tint'), has already been aid to depend on the form of the vibrations. Difference in character enables us to distinguish between voices and instruments, different kinds of voices, and different kinds of instruments.

6. The human voice may be divided into two classes, each of which may again be subdivided, as follows:-

Female or high voices (including those of children of both sexes):-
a. Soprano or Treble, the highest;
b. Mezzo-soprano, the intermediate;
c. Contralto, the lowest.

Male or low voices : -
a. Alto or Countertenor, an exceptionally high voice;
b. Tenor, the highest ordinary voice;
c. Barytone, the intermediate;
d. Bass, the lowest.

The terms 'contralto,' 'alto,' and 'countertenor,' are used somewhat vaguely, all three being applied to voices of the same range. 'Contralto' is generally used of a female voice, 'countertenor' of a male, 'alto' being sometimes inaccurately applied to either.

The names of the voices are thus derived:-
a. Bass, Low Latin bassus, 'broad.'
b. Barytone, 'heavy,' 'deep,' 'a tone.'
c. Tenor, Latin teneo, 'I hold': so called because it formerly held the principal melody when sung by men. This was called canlus, or canto, when sung by boys or women.
d. Countertenor, Latin contra tenorem, answering to the tenor.
e. Alto, Latin altus, 'high.'
f. Contralto, Latin contra altum, answering to the alto.
g. Mezzo-soprano, Latin medius, 'middle,' and Low Latin superanus, 'high.'
h. Soprano, Low Latin superanus, 'high.'
i. Treble, Latin triplex, 'triple': so called, either as applied to the third (i. e. the highest) octave of the vocal register, or as being formerly the third (i.e. the highest) part in part-singing.

7. Musical Instruments may be divided into three classes:-
a. Stringed instruments;
b. Wind instruments;
c. Instruments of Percussion; ....

Arts-Based Research, Autoethnography, and Music Education: Singing Through a Culture of Marginalization invites readers into miroslav pavle manovski's journey into quest of how he found his voice-literally and figuratively-by reflecting and storying from his fluid identity and roles as an artist, singer, learner, music teacher, researcher... while empowering others to find their own voice. This book is also an arts-based autoethnographic rendering of the author's experience being tormented, harassed, and called "gay" as a means to negatively target and marginalize him. Further, this work contributes to the literature of those mercilessly harassed for perceived effeminate characteristics and to the canon of ways we may be able to rescue ourselves-to positively transform-from prior wreckage a part of our lives. It makes significant contributions to the literature on qualitative inquiry, arts-based research, autoethnography, music education, and vocal pedagogy as a means of re-presenting a rich tapestry of life experience. While this text can be read entirely for pleasure or personal growth, it will make an outstanding springboard for conversation in courses across the disciplines that deal with teacher education, music education, gender and sexual identity/orientation, intimacy, relationships and relational communication, prejudice, bullying and more. This award-wining book will additionally be of great value in courses on autoethnography, life writing, narrative inquiry, arts-based research, and music education. "Of all the recent examples of textual experiments in the social sciences that aim to create a dialectical intertwining of the autobiographical and the theoretical, this book is among the very best. Manovski's work is at once artful, poignant, bravely self-revelatory, while simultaneously informed by the scholarship of an impressive array of academics from diverse academic fields. What awaits the reader is nothing less than a full-fledged educational experience that dazzles the mind and stirs the heart as it opens up the future." - Tom Barone, Emeritus Professor, Arizona State University.

The dark side of the dark side ...He has everything he should want in life. A good job. A nice home. A nice car. A beautiful wife and family. A retirement plan. An active social life. A prestigious reputation. Envious neighbours. A pet dog. Yet there remains an emptiness inside. In a search for meaning, he begins a journey from which he cannot return. Grasping at everything he can, experiments in ritual magick lead him into the realms of sex, drugs, organised crime, aliens and angels as his life spirals further and further up and down the paths of initiation and illumination while grappling with insanity, annihilation and transformation.
