A Handbook of Historical Stringing Practice for Keyboard Instruments 1671-1856 by Malcolm Rose and David Law

Book description
This book, intended as a source of information for all those concerned with early keyboard instruments, has been compiled with the help of owners, curators and restorers worldwide. The first 84 tables give measurements of surviving strings on a Swedish clavichord, 6 harpsichords and spinets, 39 fortepianos and upright pianos, and 38 square pianos, together with speaking lengths, gauge numbers where they exist, and calculated tensions. These tensions are presented in graph form, with a description of the benefits to be gained from studying and comparing stringing patterns in this way. 48 further tables give more diameter measurements, and record many more gauge number markings, for comparison with the principal tables. A final section gives all the information necessary to calculate diameters and tensions of plain, open-spun and close-spun strings, with blank graph sheets to photocopy as required.

Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers by Trevor J. Cox, Peter D'Antonio

Book description
Absorbers and diffusers are two of the main design tools for altering the acoustic conditions of rooms, semi-enclosed spaces and the outdoor environment. Their correct use is important for delivering high quality acoustics. Unique and authoritative, this book decribes how to effectively measure, model, design and apply diffusers and absorbers. It is a resource for new and experienced acousticians, seeking an understanding of the evolution, characteristics and application of modern diffusers. Absorption is a more established technology and so the book blends traditional designs with modern developments. The book covers practical and theoretical aspects of absorbers and diffusers and is well illustrated with examples of installations and case studies. This new edition brings Acoustic Absorbers and Diffusers up-to-date with current research, practice and standards. New developments in measurement, materials, theory and practice since the first edition (published in 2004) are included. The sections on absorbers are extended to include more about noise control.

Acoustic Echo and Noise Control-A Practical Approach by E. Hansler, Gerhard Schmidt

Book description
Essential theory and proven techniques for acoustic echo and noise suppression Today’s voice communication systems, with their increasing demand for user comfort, necessitate a growing focus on acoustic noise suppression and echo reduction. Drawing on the results of a twenty-year career with the Signal Theory Group at Darmstadt University of Technology, Darmstadt, Germany, Acoustic Echo and Noise Control: A Practical Approach addresses proven methods for suppressing acoustic echoes and noise in various sound systems, from hands-free telephones to video conferencing systems, hearing aids, and speech recognition systems. With emphasis on single-channel systems, the authors, both recognized experts in the field, deliver a combination of theoretical research and practical solutions to acoustical problems across a broad range of industries. In addition to presenting a detailed description of practical methods for controlling acoustic echoes and noise, they also develop a theory for optimal control parameters and present practical estimation and approximation methods. Some of the topics covered include: •Basic algorithms for filtering, linear prediction, and adaptation of filter coefficients •Application of these algorithms to acoustic echo cancellation and residual echo and noise suppression •Estimation of nonmeasurable quantities necessary to control algorithms •Devising control structures based on these quantities Requiring only a basic knowledge of linear systems theory and digital signal processing, this text offers an ideal resource for students, researchers, and systems engineers seeking to familiarize themselves with the latest developments and practical applications in this fascinating field

Acoustic Emission Testing Basics for Research-Applications in Civil Engineering by Christian U. Grosse (Editor), Masayasu Ohtsu (Editor)

Book description
Acoustic Emission (AE) techniques have been studied in civil engineering for a long time. The techniques are recently going to be more and more applied to practical applications and to be standardized in the codes. This is because the increase of aging structures and disastrous damages due to recent earthquakes urgently demand for maintenance and retrofit of civil structures in service for example. It results in the need for the development of advanced and effective inspection techniques. Thus, AE techniques draw a great attention to diagnostic applications and in material testing. The book covers all levels from the description of AE basics for AE beginners (level of a student) to sophisticated AE algorithms and applications to real large-scale structures as well as the observation of the cracking process in laboratory specimen to study fracture processes.

Acoustic Systems in Biology by Neville H. Fletcher

Book description
This book is a practical guide for researchers and advanced graduate students in biology and biophysics who need a quantitative understanding of acoustical systems such as hearing, sound production, and vibration detection in animals at the physiological level. It begins with an introduction to physical acoustics, covering the fundamental concepts and showing how they can be applied quantitatively to understand auditory and sound-producing systems in animals. Only after the relatively simple mechanical part of the system is explained does the author focus his attention on the underlying physiological processes. The book is written on three levels. For those wanting a brief survey of the field, each chapter begins with a nonmathematical synopsis which summarizes the content and refers to the figures, all of which are designed to be understood apart from the main text. At the next level, the reader can follow the main text, but need not give close attention to anything but the general concepts and techniques involved. At the third level, the reader should follow the mathematical arguments in detail and attempt the discussion of questions at the end of each chapter. The author has provided detailed solutions which serve to expand the discussions of particular cases.

Acoustics and Sound Insulation by Eckard Mommertz

Book description
Acoustics and protection against noise do not perhaps number among the primary parameters that normally influence the design of a building. Nevertheless, at the very latest when the lecturer in the seminar room cannot be heard, when the noise level in an open-plan office reaches unbearable levels, or when a neighbors noise deprives you of sleep, it becomes clear just how essential acoustic can be to everyday well-being. it is not just concert halls or the amphitheaters of antiquity that call for acoustic quality; rather, every building, indeed every room, has an acoustic dimension that changes according to the nature of its particular requirements. This practice-oriented volume provides expert planners and architects but also interested developers with practical knowledge on the subject of acoustics in high-rise architecture, beginning with standards on methods of planning and prognosis and moving on to the areas of acoustics of rooms and architecture and noise protection in urban planning. Typologically organized chapters comment on proper approaches to the subject with examples of different types of building such as residential and office buildings, schools, kindergartens, lecture halls, event spaces, and so on, because appropriate acoustic conditions make an essential contribution to the success of a project. Schallschutz und Akustik gehören vielleicht nicht zu den primären Parametern, die den Entwurf eines Gebäudes normalerweise beeinflussen. Doch spätestens wenn man den Vortragenden im Seminarraum nicht versteht, der Geräuschpegel im Großraumbüro unerträgliche Ausmaße annimmt oder das Rumoren des Nachbars einem den Schlaf raubt, wird klar, wie wesentlich die Raumakustik zum alltäglichen Wohlbefinden beiträgt. Nicht nur Konzertsäle oder das antike Amphitheater erheben Anspruch auf akustische Qualität, sondern jedes Gebäude, sogar jeder Raum besitzt eine akustische Dimension, die je nach Funktion in ihren individuellen Anfo

Acoustics for Audiologists by Peter Haughton

Book description
Many who come to work in audiology have little previous training in acoustics, or in the physical sciences generally. They find these subjects difficult, but when they seek help from books on audiology, they are likely to find only superficial accounts whereas books on acoustics mostly assume a physics-based readership and are consequently too difficult for the general reader. "Acoustics for Audiologists" fills the gap. It can be read at several levels. At the most basic, it provides a full explanation of many of the general principles and special terms in acoustics that are relevant to clinical audiology and audiological science. The main text is supported by an introductory chapter covering the underlying physics, an appendix on the required mathematics, and worked examples and questions. At a more advanced level, the book answers the needs of students of audiological science and audiological medicine for whom previous studies have not included the physical sciences. It is written for audiologists, trainee audiological scientists, and students of audiological medicine. The supporting text includes a quick review of the relevant physics and mathematics. It contains special exercises in working with decibels. It also contains worked examples to assist self-study and as a source for taught courses. It features more than 170 figures.

Acoustics of small rooms by Mendel Kleiner_ Jiri Tichy

Book description
Much time is spent working out how to optimize the acoustics of large rooms, such as auditoria, but the acoustics of small rooms and environments can be just as vital. The expensive sound equipment of a recording studio or the stereo in a car or living room is likewise rendered useless if the acoustic environment is not right for them. Changes in wavelength to room size ratio and the time difference between the direct and reflected sound at the listening location mean that the acoustics of small spaces are quite different to those of large spaces. Tackling these specific aspects of physics, sound perception, and applications for small spaces, Acoustics of Small Rooms brings together important facets of small room acoustics. Divided into clear sections, it covers: •Sound propagation--the effects of boundaries, sound absorbers and diffusers •Physiology and psychoacoustics •Methods and techniques of room and sound field optimization •Examples of how these principles apply to control rooms, stereo, surround and home theater as well as music practice rooms •Measurement and modeling techniques

Acoustics of Solids by Abraham I. Beltzer

Book description
Technological developments in composite materials, non-destructive testing, and signal processing as well as biomedical applications, have stimulated wide-ranging engineering investigations of heterogeneous, anisotropic media and surface waves of different types. Wave propagation in solids is now of considerable importance in a variety of applications. The book presents many of the key results in this field and interprets them from a unified engineering viewpoint. The conceptual importance and relevance for applications were the prevailing criteria in selecting the topics. Included are body and surface waves in elastic, viscoelastic, and piezoelectric media and waveguides, with emphasis on the effects of inhomogeneity and anisotropy. The book differs in many aspects from the other monographs dealing with wave propagation in solids. It focuses on physically meaningful theoretical models, a broad spectrum of which is covered, and not on mathematical techniques. Some of the results, particularly those dealing with waves in composites, are given for the first time in the monographical literature. Both, exact and approximate approaches, are discussed. While the subject is advanced, the presentation is at an intermediate level of mathematical complexity, making understanding easier.

Acoustics of wood by Voichita Bucur

Book description
The book 'Acoustics of Wood' is devoted to those aspects related to the development of acoustic methods as an effective means for examining physical properties of wood through an interdisciplinary approach. The main parts of the book are: environmental acoustics, material characterization and quality assessment. In the first part of the book a discussion of the physical phenomena associated with the propagation of acoustic waves in forests is presented. The behavior of wood and wood-based composites as materials used in architectural acoustics is also discussed. The second part was written in response to practical considerations about wood uses. This part provides an introductory understanding of basic aspects related to the theory of waves propagation in anisotropic solids, experimental methods for acoustics and mechanic characterization of wood, examination of wood anisotropy using ultrasonic parameters. In the third part wood quality assessment is discussed. Wood used for musical instruments has the most remarkable quality, with unique acoustic properties. In contrast with wood for musical instruments, free of defects, in common wood the defects are always present.

Acoustique des instruments de musique by Antoine Chaigne, Jean Kergomard, Xavier Boutillon, Jean-Pierre Dalmont

Book description
Quel est le rôle du biseau d'une flûte ? Comment se constitue le " timbre " d'un instrument, qui nous permet de distinguer à coup sûr une trompette d'une clarinette ? A travers de nombreux exemples illustrés, cet ouvrage présente les bases nécessaires pour comprendre les phénomènes complexes à l'œuvre dans les instruments de musique. Il s'adresse aux chercheurs, aux étudiants - des exercices corrigés en ligne leur sont proposés - et aux ingénieurs, mais aussi aux musiciens, facteurs et mélomanes qui souhaitent acquérir les fondements de l'acoustique musicale. Détaillant les résultats considérables acquis ces quinze dernières années, les auteurs s'appuient sur l'analyse progressive des briques élémentaires participant à la production du son pour dégager des concepts applicables à l'ensemble des instruments. Ils montrent en particulier que des modèles physiques, même simples, peuvent être mis à profit pour des applications concrètes en facture instrumentale, en prise de son ou en synthèse sonore. Un livre très attendu qui fera date.

Una de las características más notables del arte musical en los últimos decenios es sin duda alguna, el prodigioso aumento de su campo de acción, antes limitado a una reducida minoría y extendido ahora a grandes sectores de la población mediante el disco o la radiotelefonía que permiten al aficionado conocer sin esfuerzo y en poco tiempo mayor cantidad de música que el profesional de antaño en varios años de experiencia. Paralelamente, las vinculaciones entre nuestro arte y las diversas ramas de la ciencia y la técnica modernas con él relacionadas se han estrechado de tal modo que es inadmisible que el músico deseoso de poseer una preparación completa ignore las leyes fundamentales de la Acústica, los procedimientos de formación de las escalas y los principios que informan la construcción de los instrumentos musicales o los métodos principales para registrar y reproducir el sonido. La índole de este trabajo, destinado al estudiante de música, cuya cultura científica suele ser descuidada en favor de la preparación técnica necesaria a su carrera, me ha decidido a incluir en el texto, directamente o mediante apéndices y notas al pie, las nociones de matemáticas, de psicología y de anatomía y fisiología del oido indispensables a la comprensión de ciertos párrafos. Asimismo, por considerarlo de interés he agregado sobre los instrumentos transpositores, acústica de las salas y determinación de la velocidad del sonido.

Acústica y psicoacústica de la música by Juan G. Roederer

Book description
La psicoacústica intenta explicar los fenómenos que ocurren una vez el sonido entra por la oreja. Este libro intenta hacer una aproximación a este complejo mundo que involucra la física, la música y la neuropsicología. Y lo consigue pese a su gran complejidad. Un excelente acercamiento a la acústica musical y la psicoacústica con interesantes explicaciones, de manera resumida, y apoyado con las investigaciones que se habían realizado en el momento de su escritura. El libro fue escrito en 1995, algunas de las investigaciones ya han sido superadas y otras ampliadas pero los fundamentos básicos siguen en plena vigencia. Este libro trata de los sistemas físicos y procesos neuropsicológicos que intervienen en lo que llamamos "música". Combina una discusión de acústica musical tradicional con una presentación de los más recientes descubrimientos en psicoacústica y función cerebral. Usando el lenguaje preciso de la ciencia, pero sin matemática complicada, el autor presenta un cuadro coherente e integrado de la física, psicoacústica y neuropsicología de la música, analizando la relación entre ciertas características de las ondas sonoras con las sensaciones psicológicas evocadas, y describiendo cómo estas ondas son generadas en los instrumentos musicales, cómo se propagan a través del medio ambiente, y como son detectadas por el oído e interpretadas por el cerebro. Además de ser de interés general para un público bien informado, amante de la música, este libro puede servir como texto principal o de consulta en cursos de teoría musical; también se espera que sea de interés para psicólogos y terapistas. Encontrarán en los capítulos pertinentes una útil puesta al día de los más recientes resultados de investigación.

Architectural Acoustics Illustrated, 2 edition by Michael A. Ermann

Book description
Architectural Acoustics Illustrated translates the quantitative and qualitative content of acoustics into the graphic language of architecture. This highly-visual guide includes over 350 illustrations that outline the physics of sound and the best design practices for limiting or mitigating noise in buildings by using the latest in materials and techniques. Each chapter includes a summary checklist of design guidelines to help prevent mistakes and oversights, and the Instructor?s website offers video animations demonstrating acoustical concepts. Designed as a "first look" at the interaction of sound and space, the book explains the principles of architectural acoustics and their practical applications, providing a comprehensive guide for designing with acoustics in mind. Architectural acoustics is more than just concert halls - it may determine building placement, division of interior space, exterior construction, and even siting. When addressed early in the design process, the resulting space can be free of unwanted sound and promote good hearing; if left unaddressed, the problems with the space can lead to lawsuits and costly post-construction remediation. Architectural Acoustics Illustrated helps designers solve most acoustical problems in advance, by enabling readers to: Understand the physical science underlying the behavior of sound Consider the interactions of sound and space in the initial design approach Mitigate building sounds such as those produced by HVAC and plumbing with early design planning Design spaces for listening, and incorporate acoustics best practices into every plan The highly visual format of the book helps readers grasp complex concepts quickly, and thorough discussion of each concept?s real-world application ties the science directly into the design process. All design professionals need to have a fundamental understanding of acoustics, and Architectural Acoustics Illustrated is a comprehensive, practical guide in an easy-to-read format.

Bois de musique. La forêt berceau de l'harmonie by Jean-Marie Ballu

Book description
Toujours les poètes ont tendu l'oreille aux étranges murmures des arbres séculaires. Mais lorsque ces " vivants piliers " - disait Baudelaire - fournissent leur chair pour la fabrication des instruments, alors la forêt et son chant primitif deviennent la grande musique des bois orchestraux. Le bois a non seulement permis la construction de presque tous nos instruments de musique, mais au-delà il a façonné notre art musical occidental depuis le Haut Moyen-Age. Forestiers et luthiers concourent à la naissance d'un bel instrument, qui se contemple autant qu'il s'écoute, car l'artisan et son outil savent sublimer en table d'harmonie, en fond ou en archets..., les mailles miroitantes, les dessins ondés de l'érable, les cernes fins de l'épicéa. ce livre conte cette merveilleuse alchimie où la facture instrumentale de l'artiste remplace la magie de Merlin avec le même enchantement. L'auteur, ingénieur général du Génie rural des Eaux et des Forêts souligne enfin, en professionnel de la forêt, qu'utiliser le bois pour en tirer des meubles ou des harmonies musicales, c'est faire chanter la planète et la préserver contre les poisons délétères de l'atmosphère... et de la civilisation.

Computational Mechanics of the Classical Guitar by Rolf Bader

Book description
Computational Mechanics of the Classical Guitar describes a new dynamic paradigm in instrument acoustics based on time-dependent transient analysis and simulation of complete musical instruments. It describes the current state of theoretical and experimental research into the guitar for engineers, instrument makers and musicians. This includes a summary of the basic equations for the mechanics of vibrating bodies and a presentation of the FDM (finite difference method) model with which the true vibrational behaviour of the instrument as an entire system can be understood for the first time. This monograph presents various new theoretical and experimental results and insights into guitar playing such as the coupling between the strings and the top plate or a description of the finger noise made when the fingers slide over the strings before plucking.

The articles range from the serious to the simply delightful and once again prove the value of humor as a force that carries drier material to a reader. Would I have read an entire article on circuit bending (manipulating by means of short circuits) electronic sounds from Texas Instruments' learning toys Speak and Read and its fellows, had author Q.R.

Kirchenakustik by Jürgen Meyer

Book description
Akustische Probleme sind sowohl im gottesdienstlichen Bereich wie auch bei Kirchenkonzerten keine Seltenheit. Dieses Buch zeigt grundsätzliche Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung der raumakustischen Gegebenheiten in Kirchen.Akustische Probleme sind sowohl im gottesdienstlichen Bereich wie auch bei Kirchenkonzerten keine Seltenheit. Oft könnte dagegen wirkungsvoll Abhilfe geschaffen werden, wenn sich die Verantwortlichen bewußt wären, welche grundsätzlichen Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung der raumakustischen Gegebenheiten bestehen. Nicht nur bei der Konzeption von Kirchen-Neubauten, sondern vor allem bei der Restaurierung bzw. Renovierung historischer Kirchenräume bleiben jedoch - auch unter Berücksichtigung des Denkmalschutzes - wertvolle Chancen oft ungenutzt. Aufbauend auf den Erfahrungen mit mehr als 150 Kirchen von der kleinen Dorfkirche bis zur Kathedrale wendet sich dieses Buch deshalb an Architekten und Kirchenbauämter ebenso wie an die Geistlichen und vor allem an Kirchenmusiker und Orgelbauer, um sie beim Umgang mit Kirchenräumen zu unterstützen.

La física de los instrumentos musicales by Javier Luzuriaga, Raúl O Pérez

Book description
La música es, sin duda, mucho más antigua que la física como actividad humana. Sin embargo, para producir sonidos hay que seguir reglas que, en el fondo, provienen de las propiedades físicas de los materiales y el aire. Por lo tanto, el constructor de instrumentos musicales también está haciendo física. Estas páginas intentan tender un puente entre el lenguaje de los físicos –que hablan de frecuencias, amplitudes y espectros de Fourier– y los músicos que, desde antes que los físicos, hablan de altura, intensidad y timbre de los sonidos.

Mécanique de la corde vibrante by Claude Valette, Christian-Cuesta

Book description
Cet ouvrage montre que les cordes réelles ne sont pas réductibles à la corde vibrante. Elles sont le siège de phénomènes vibratoires complexes, avec des amortissements d'origine diverse et des couplages de modes provenant des non-linéarités intrinsèques. Ces couplages interviennent en particulier dans le transitoire d'attaque. Des aspects structurels sont abordés, notamment dans les cordes filées. Dans certaines applications (instruments à chevalets plats ), des effets fortement non linéaires sont induits par une condition aux limites d'appui directionnel. Tous ces mécanismes conditionnent à des degrés divers les applications musicales (choix des cordes) et interviennent, d'une façon générale, dans les applications industrielles des fils précontraints.

Music, Cognition, and Computerized Sound. An Introduction to Psychoacoustics by Perry R. Cook (Editor)

Book description
How hearing works and how the brain processes sounds entering the ear to provide the listener with useful information are of great interest to psychologists, cognitive scientists, and musicians. However, while a number of books have concentrated on individual aspects of this field, known as psychoacoustics, there has been no comprehensive introductory coverage of the multiple topics encompassed under the term. Music, Cognition, and Computerized Sound is the first book to provide that coverage, and it does so via a unique and useful approach.The book begins with introductory chapters on the basic physiology and functions of the ear and auditory sections of the brain, then proceeds to discuss numerous topics associated with the study of psychoacoustics, including cognitive psychology and the physics of sound. The book has a particular emphasis on music and computerized sound. An accompanying audio CD includes many sound examples to help explicate the text.The contributing authors include John Chowning, Perry R. Cook, Brent Gillespie, Daniel J. Levitin, Max Mathews, John Pierce, and Roger Shepard.

Musical Mathematics. On the Art and Science of Acoustic Instruments by Cristiano M.L. Forster

Book description
The first part of the book contains practical information on how to design and build musical instruments, starting from first principles of vibrating sound sources of various kinds. The ideas are explained clearly and thoroughly. Many beautiful figures have been carefully conceived to illuminate the concepts. And when Cris gives, say, formulas for designing flutes, it’s not just something he read in a book somewhere (though he has carefully studied many books); rather, you can be sure it is something he has tried out: he knows it works from direct experience. While some of this information can be found (albeit in a less accessible form) in other books on musical acoustics, other information appears nowhere else. For example, Cris developed a method for tuning the overtones of marimba bars that results in a powerful, unique tone not found in commercial instruments.

Musical Sound. An Introduction to the Physics of Music by Michael J. Moravcsik

Book description
This text has been out of print since 1990; it was originally published by Solomon Press in 1987. Several experts in the field have verified that the information in the book remains constant; nothing has, or will, change in the basic science of musical sound. It explains the science of musical sound without the encumbrance of detailed mathematics. It will appeal to music lovers as well as students of music and students of physics. It can easily be promoted with our physics program.

Musimathics, Volume 2. The Mathematical Foundations of Music by Gareth Loy

Book description
"Mathematics can be as effortless as humming a tune, if you know the tune," writes Gareth Loy. In Musimathics, Loy teaches us the tune, providing a friendly and spirited tour of the mathematics of music--a commonsense, self-contained introduction for the nonspecialist reader.Volume 2 of Musimathics continues the story of music engineering begun in volume 1, focusing on the digital and computational domain. Loy goes deeper into the mathematics of music and sound, beginning with digital audio, sampling, and binary numbers, as well as complex numbers and how they simplify representation of musical signals. Chapters cover the Fourier transform, convolution, filtering, resonance, the wave equation, acoustical systems, sound synthesis, the short time Fourier transform, and the wavelet transform. These subjects provide the theoretical underpinnings of today's music technology. The material in volume 1 is all preparatory to the subjects presented in this volume, although either volume can be read independently. Cross-references to volume 1 are provided for concepts introduced in the earlier volume, and additional mathematical orientation is offered where necessary. The topics are all subjects that contemporary composers, musicians, and music engineers have found to be important. The examples given are all practical problems in music and audio. The level of scholarship and the pedagogical approach also make Musimathics ideal for classroom use. Additional material can be found at a companion web site.

Musimathics. The Mathematical Foundations of Music, Volume 1 by Gareth Loy

Book description
"Mathematics can be as effortless as humming a tune, if you know the tune," writes Gareth Loy. In Musimathics, Loy teaches us the tune, providing a friendly and spirited tour of the mathematics of music--a commonsense, self-contained introduction for the nonspecialist reader. It is designed for musicians who find their art increasingly mediated by technology, and for anyone who is interested in the intersection of art and science. In this volume, Loy presents the materials of music (notes, intervals, and scales); the physical properties of music (frequency, amplitude, duration, and timbre); the perception of music and sound (how we hear); and music composition. Musimathics is carefully structured so that new topics depend strictly on topics already presented, carrying the reader progressively from basic subjects to more advanced ones. Cross-references point to related topics and an extensive glossary defines commonly used terms. The book explains the mathematics and physics of music for the reader whose mathematics may not have gone beyond the early undergraduate level. Calling himself "a composer seduced into mathematics," Loy provides answers to foundational questions about the mathematics of music accessibly yet rigorously. The topics are all subjects that contemporary composers, musicians, and musical engineers have found to be important. The examples given are all practical problems in music and audio. The level of scholarship and the pedagogical approach also make Musimathics ideal for classroom use. Additional material can be found at a companion web site.

Ondes acoustiques by Antoine Chaigne

Book description
Cet ouvrage s'adresse à des étudiants de maîtrise ou des grandes écoles. Sa lecture ne fait appel qu'à des connaissances de base en physique des ondes et en mécanique des milieux continus. L'ouvrage est consacré à l'acoustique audible, en milieu aérien. On y introduit tout d'abord les notions de base de la propagation et de la génération des ondes sonores, dans le cadre de l'approximation linéaire. La suite du cours est destinée à permettre aux lecteurs d'aborder les applications variées de l'acoustique : acoustique des instruments de musique, acoustique architecturale, filtres acoustiques,... On y trouve des développements sur les ondes guidées, sur la modélisation des sources sonores élémentaires et planes, ainsi que sur les interactions entre une structure vibrante et le champ acoustique qu'elle génère. Le dernier chapitre est consacré à la présentation des différentes théories utilisées pour étudier l'acoustique des lieux clos : théorie statistique, théorie ondulatoire et théorie des rayons. Chaque chapitre comprend plusieurs exemples d'applications traités sous forme d'exercices ou de problèmes avec leurs corrigés détaillés.

Physics of the Piano by Nicholas J. Giordano Sr

Book description
Why does a piano sound like a piano? A similar question can be asked of virtually all musical instruments. A particular note - such as middle C - can be produced by a piano, a violin, a clarinet, and many other instruments, yet it is easy for even a musically untrained listener to distinguish between these different instruments. A central quest in the study of musical instruments is to understand why the sound of the "same" note depends greatly on the instrument, and to elucidate which aspects of an instrument are most critical in producing the musical tones characteristic of the instrument. The primary goal of Physics of the Piano is to investigate these questions for the piano. The explanations in this book use a minimum of mathematics, and are intended for anyone who is interested in music and musical instruments. At the same time, there are many insights relating physics and the piano that will likely be interesting and perhaps surprising for many physicists.

Psychoacoustics. Facts and Models by Hugo Fastl, Eberhard Zwicker

Book description
Psychoacoustics - Facts and Models offers a unique, comprehensive summary of information describing the processing of sound by the human hearing system. It includes quantitative relations between sound stimuli and auditory perception in terms of hearing sensations, for which quantitative models are given, as well as an unequalled collection of data on the human hearing system as a receiver of acoustic information. In addition, many examples of the practical application of the results of basic research in fields such as noise control, audiology, or sound quality engineering are detailed. The third edition includes an additional chapter on audio-visual interactions and applications, plus more on applications throughout. Acoustic demonstrations on a CD included with this edition further illustrate and amplify basic and applied psychoacoustic phenomena. Reviews of previous editions have characterized it as "an essential source of psychoacoustic knowledge," "a major landmark ," and a book that "without doubt will have a long-lasting effect on the standing and future evolution of this scientific domain."

The Physics and Psychophysics of Music. An Introduction by Juan G. Roederer

Book description
This book, a classic in its field, deals with the physical systems and physiological processes that intervene in music. It analyzes what objective, physical properties of sound are associated with what subjective psychological sensations of music, and it describes how these sound patterns are actually generated in musical instruments, how they propagate through the environment, and how they are detected by the ear and interpreted in the brain. Using the precise language of science, but without complicated mathematics, the author weaves a close mesh of the physics, psychophysics and physiology relevant to music. A prior knowledge of physics, mathematics, physiology or psychology is not required to understand most of the book; it is, however, assumed that the reader is familiar with music - in particular, with musical notation, musical scales and intervals, and some of the basics of musical instruments.

The Physics of the Violin by Lothar Cremer, John S. Allen (Translator)

Book description
This major work covers almost all that has been learned about the acoustics of stringed instruments from Helmholtz's 19th-century theoretical elaborations to recent electroacoustic and holographic measurements.Many of the results presented here were uncovered by the author himself (and by his associates and students) over a 20-year period of research on the physics of instruments in the violin family. Lothar Cremer is one of the world's most respected authorities on architectural acoustics and, not incidentally, an avid avocational violinist and violist.The book - which was published in German in 1981 - first of all meets the rigorous technical standards of specialists in musical acoustics. But it also serves the needs and interests of two broader groups: makers and players of stringed instruments are expressly addressed, since the implications of the mathematical formulations are fully outlined and explained; and acousticians in general will find that the work represents a textbook illustration of the application of fundamental principles and up-to-date techniques to a specific problem.The first - and longest - of the book's three parts investigates the oscillatory responses of bowed (and plucked) strings. The natural nonlinearities that derive from considerations of string torsion and bending stiffness are deftly handled and concisely modeled.The second part deals with the body of the instrument. Special attention is given to the bridge, which transmits the oscillations of the strings to the wooden body and its air cavity. In this case, linear modeling proves serviceable for the most part - a simplification that would not be possible with lute - like instruments such as the guitar.The radiation of sound from the body into the listener's space, which is treated as an extension of the instrument itself, is the subject of the book's final part.Lothar Cremer is Professor Emeritus at the Technical University of Berlin, where he served as director of the Institute for Acoustical Engineering.

The Responsive Guitar (Vol 1 and 2) 2-book Boxed Set by Ervin Somogyi

Book description
This limited edition silver-embossed, facsimile-autographed, slipcase holds both books. These books are essential for anyone who is interested in a comprehensive account of the modern guitar, and how a highly responsive guitar is made. They offer info from one of the most-revered luthiers of our times. No publication has ever presented trade secrets and practical information to truly change the way a person makes or appreciates the steel-stringed guitar. Ervin Somogyi is a Hungarian-born master luthier whose guitars are renowned for their responsiveness and tone trademarks for a great guitar. After almost five decades of making this instrument, teaching and writing about the development and construction of the guitar, Somogyi reveals the methods, techniques and philosophy behind his legendary instruments. The Responsive Guitar is about physics, dynamics, acoustics and construction of the guitar. It's about the mechanics of tone; what materials to build with, when to add or remove wood for maximum benefit, and why those techniques work. Somogyi explains in exquisite detail how the guitar makes sound, and what musicians and luthiers need to know in order to appreciate a really well-made guitar. This book sets the foundation for the matching volume Making the Responsive Guitar . Making the Responsive Guitar is the second volume on a two-volume set of books that set out the principles and methods of building fine hand-made guitars. Where Volume 1 sets up the knowledge, this book is about how to build a guitar, from the very first step to the last.

The Science of String Instruments by Thomas D. Rossing (Editor)

Book description
This book will be a non-technical book on string instruments that includes some technical information as well. The emphasis will be on the practical understanding of string instruments, with the interests of performers and instrument builders in the forefront. Authors of the chapters will be musicians, scientists, and instrument designers and builders with practical experience. The mathematics will be kept as simple as possible by translating ideas from the language of physics (mathematics) to non-mathematical language. Considerable emphasis will be placed on the design and construction of string instruments. Following the structure of the author’s successful Science of Percussion Instruments (World Scientific, 2000), technical ideas will be presented as "interludes." Readers who wish to go beyond the simple ideas in this book can easily follow the references to more scientific books and to the original scientific literature. From the Back Cover Many performing musicians, as well as instrument builders, are coming to realize the importance of understanding the science of musical instruments. This book explains how string instruments produce sound. It presents basic ideas in simple language, and it also translates some more sophisticated ideas in non-technical language. It should be of interest to performers, researchers, and instrument makers alike. About the Author Tom Rossing has taught musical acoustics for nearly 50 years, and has been active in research in this area for at least 30 years. In 1992 he was awarded the Silver Medal in Musical Acoustics by the Acoustical Society of America, and his biography is included in The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. He is also the editor of the 2006 Springer Handbook of Acoustics. In 2009 he was awarded the ASA Gold Medal by the Acoustical Society of America for contributions to musical acoustics, leadership in science education, and service to the Society.

The Varnishes of the Italian Violin-Makers of the Sixteenth, Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries, and Their Influence on Tone by George Fry

Book description
The casual observations which led to the interesting research which forms the subject of this Treatise came as a "bolt from the blue." Experts who have had constant opportunities for studying the varnish on old Italian instruments have, without exception, accepted the theory that it is an oil-varnish coloured to suit individual taste, although in no single case have their own descriptions of its appearance been found to support this conclusion; various reasons and excuses have been suggested why modem violin-makers have been unable to reproduce it. No scientist or chemist appears to have given much attention to the subject, for the simple reason that no means have been available for a complete investigation.

Voice Science, Acoustics, and Recording by David M. Howard, Damian T. Murphy

Book description
Written for voice professionals, their teachers and those who care for their voices, this unique book covers voice acoustics, the effect of the acoustics of spaces on the voice, and how to make a voice recording properly. The book is wholly practical and written in a manner which is rooted in science but which is designed to enable understanding by non-scientists and voice practitioners alike. The authors provide an outline of acoustics and the human voice, before going on to cover ways in which voice users - from professional and amateur singers and performers, through lawyers, to school teachers - the largest group reporting to clinics with vocal problems - can improve vocal efficiency, regardless of location, and vocal health. Also covered are methods of amplification, whether through microphones, or simply by posture or stance and best methods for sound recording.
