TitleSpectral analysis of musical sounds with emphasis on the piano
Author(s)David M. Koenig and Delwin D. Fandrich
Description1 online resource : illustrations (black and white)
Abstract NoteIn this book the tools of spectral analysis are applied via graphics to musical sounds, especially those coming from a piano, with emphasis on the visualization of musical sounds rather than the mathematics behind it. The aim is to give a different and insightful view of musical instruments

TitlePrinciples of musical acoustics
Author(s)William M. Hartmann
Description1 online resource (xiv, 348 pages) : illustrations
Abstract NotePrinciples of Musical Acoustics focuses on the basic principles in the science and technology of music. Musical examples and specific musical instruments demonstrate the principles. The book begins with a study of vibrations and waves, in that order. These topics constitute the basic physical properties of sound, one of two pillars supporting the science of musical acoustics. The second pillar is the human element, the physiological and psychological aspects of acoustical science. The perceptual topics include loudness, pitch, tone color, and localization of sound. With these two pillars in place, it is possible to go in a variety of directions. The book treats in turn, the topics of room acoustics, audio both analog and digital, broadcasting, and speech. It ends with chapters on the traditional musical instruments, organized by family. The mathematical level of this book assumes that the reader is familiar with elementary algebra. Trigonometric functions, logarithms and powers also appear in the book, but computational techniques are included as these concepts are introduced, and there is further technical help in appendices

Titlescience of string instruments
Author(s)Thomas D. Rossing (ed.)
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2010.
Description1 online resource (viii, 470 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteThis 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 str

TitleAcoustics and the performance of music : manual for acousticians, audio engineers, musicians, architects and musical instruments makers
Author(s)J�urgen Meyer
Edition5th ed
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2009.
Description1 online resource (438 p., [8] p. of plates) : ill. (some col.), music
Abstract NoteConnects scientific understandings of acoustics with practical applications to musical performance. Of central importance are the tonal characteristics of musical instruments and the singing voice including detailed representations of directional characteristics. Furthermore, room acoustical concerns related to concert halls and opera houses are considered. Based on this, suggestions are made for musical performance. Included are seating arrangements within the orchestra and adaptation of performance techniques to the performance environment. This presentation dispenses with complicated mathematical connections and aims for conceptual explanations accessible to musicians, particularly for conductors. The graphical representations of the directional dependence of sound radiation by musical instruments and the singing voice are unique. This German edition has become a standard reference work for audio engineers and scientists
Contents NoteIntroduction to acoustics -- Structural of musical sound -- Tonal characteristics of musical instruments -- Foundations of room acoustics -- Acoustical properties of old and new performance spaces -- Seating arrangement in the concert hall -- Acoustic considerations for instrumentation and playing technique -- Acoustical problems in the opera house -- Table for angular dependence of the statistical directivity factor

TitleAcoustics and hearing
Author(s)Peter Damaske
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2008.
Description1 online resource (xii, 120 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteWhen one listens to music at home, one would like to have an acoustic impression close to that of being in the concert hall. Until recently this meant elaborate multi-channelled sound systems with 5 or more speakers. But head-related stereophony achieves the surround-sound effect in living room with only two loudspeakers. By virtue of their slight directivity as well as an electronic filter the limitations previously common to two-speaker systems can be overcome and this holds for any arbitrary two-channel recording. The book also investigates the question of how a wide and diffuse sound image can arise in concert halls and shows that the quality of concert halls decisively depends on diffuse sound images arising in the onset of reverberation. For this purpose a strong onset of reverberation is modified in an anechoic chamber by electroacoustic means. Acoustics and Hearing proposes ideas concerning signal processing in the auditory system that explain the measured results and the resultant sound effects pleasing to the audience
Contents NoteHead-related stereophony -- Powerful onset of reverberation -- Definition of diffuseness -- Theory of drift thresholds -- Loudness and diffuseness
