|Plot Summary of The Black Sounders|
Joz left the farm where he used to live together with his uncle and cousin and came to Technopolis hoping he would be able to find some work. Here, he finds out that people are not as good as in his small farm, but brutal and mean. However, he meets Bruleh a sweet and gentle young woman from the highest social level.
They begin a wonderful friendship and love story. In order to thank him for saving her from falling, Bruleh gives Joz one of her magical stones which had the power to convert to music every sound it heard. This way, the two youngsters will be able to communicate through music.
Joz also meets a few young men who gladly welcome him into their gang. Here he can do what he best likes: his music. But, being a musician is not a common occupation in this city, because together with painting and writing, it is considered the reason of the catastrophe that has almost destroyed the Earth long ago. The inhabitants of Technopolis were the only ones who survived it. Soon after the police gets him but he manages to escape prison and gets out of Technopolis where he meets a group of people who decided to leave the city and live outside the imposed official rules. He feels great here but he misses the one he loves as he is far away from her.
