The Physics of Musical Instruments

While the history of musical instruments is nearly as old as civilisation itself, the science of acoustics is quite recent. By understanding the physical basis of how instruments are used to make music, one hopes ultimately to be able to give physical criteria to distinguish a fine instrument from a mediocre one. At that point science may be able to come to the aid of art in improving the design and performance of musical instruments. As yet, many of the subtleties in musical sounds of which instrument makers and musicians are aware remain beyond the reach of modern acoustic measurements. This book describes the results of such acoustical investigations - fascinating intellectual and practical exercises. Addressed to readers with a reasonable grasp of physics who are not put off by a little mathematics, this book discusses most of the traditional instruments currently in use in Western music. A guide for all who have an interest in music and how it is produced, as well as serving as a comprehensive reference for those undertaking research in the field.

Musical acoustics presents a unique opportunity to see science and art working together. This book is a balanced presentation of all aspects of musical acoustics. It explains how our ears and brains interpret musical events, and connects traditional physical analyses to musical reality. The purpose of the book is two fold: (1) To help students use simple physical concepts as tools for understanding how music works, and (2) To use students' interest in music to motivate the study and appreciation of scientific methods. Any given chapter will challenge students with several points that are not obvious on the first reading. Starred sections are optional and are not a prerequisite to later sections.

Why You Hear what You Hear

An Experiential Approach to Sound, Music, and Psychoacoustics

Page: 590

This the first book on the physics of sound for the nonspecialist to empower readers with a hands-on, ears-open approach that includes production, analysis, and perception of sound. The book makes possible a deep intuitive understanding of many aspects of sound, as opposed to the usual approach of mere description. This goal is aided by hundreds of original illustrations and examples, many of which the reader can reproduce and adjust using the same tools used by the author. Readers are positioned to build intuition by participating in discovery. This introduction to sound engages and informs amateur and professional musicians, performers, teachers, sound engineers, students of many stripes, and indeed anyone interested in the auditory world. The book does not hesitate to follow entertaining and sometimes controversial side trips into the history and world of acoustics, reinforcing key concepts. You will discover how musical instruments really work, how pitch is perceived, and how sound can be amplified with no external power source.

Physikalische und psychoakustische Grundlagen der Musik

Dieses Buch beschäftigt sich mit den physikalischen Systemen und psychophysikalischen Prozessen, die im Zusammenhang mit jenem Phänomen stehen, das wir allgemein als "Musik" bezeichnen. Es soll interessierten Musikern helfen zu verstehen, auf welche physikalische Weise musikalische Töne erzeugt werden und sich im Raum ausbreiten, und wie Musik vom Zuhörer empfangen und empfunden wird. Physikalisches und mathematisches Vorwissen jenseits des Abiturs ist dazu nicht erforderlich. Den musikliebenden Wissenschaftlern sollen viele Fragen, die sie sich bezüglich Musik und Tonempfindung gestellt haben dürften, beantwortet werden. Den Musikpsychologen wird ein Versuch dargeboten, die Frage "Warum lieben wir Musik?" von einem neuro-funktionellen Standpunkt aus zu erläutern. Die 3. Auflage wurde gründlich überarbeitet, um die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse über Tonerzeugung, Physiologie des Gehörs und den kognitiven Prozessen beim Verarbeiten von Sinnesinformation einzufügen.

What type of practice makes a musician perfect? What sort of child is most likely to succeed on a musical instrument? What practice strategies yield the fastest improvement in skills such as sight-reading, memorization, and intonation? Scientific and psychological research can offer answers to these and other questions that musicians face every day. In The Science and Psychology of Music Performance, Richard Parncutt and Gary McPherson assemble relevant current research findings and make them accessible to musicians and music educators. This book describes new approaches to teaching music, learning music, and making music at all educational and skill levels. Each chapter represents the collaboration between a music researcher (usually a music psychologist) and a performer or music educator. This combination of expertise results in excellent practical advice. Readers will learn, for example, that they are in the majority (57%) if they experience rapid heartbeat before performances; the chapter devoted to performance anxiety will help them decide whether beta-blocker medication, hypnotherapy, or the Alexander Technique of relaxation might alleviate their stage fright. Another chapter outlines a step-by-step method for introducing children to musical notation, firmly based on research in cognitive development. Altogether, the 21 chapters cover the personal, environmental, and acoustical influences that shape the learning and performance of music.
