This foundational text is written for students who want to go beyond the perceptual stage of music to learn how musical sound is created and perceived. It surveys a wide range of topics related to acoustics, beginning with a brief history of the art and science of music. Succeeding chapters explore the general principles of sound, musical scales, the primary ways in which sound can be generated, the characteristics of instruments, the use of mechanical and electronic recording devices, hi-fi stereophonic and quadraphonic sound, the design of electronic musical instruments, and architectural acoustics. Comprehensive yet accessible, Physics and Music includes over 300 diagrams, photographs, and tables. Each chapter concludes with questions, problems, and projects, in addition to references for further study. 1980 edition.... 186 Lingual organ pipes, 244 Lipping-in, 252 Liquids, transmission of sound in , 48 Lobe pattern, sound from speaker, 65 Logarithms, ... 30, 32, 35, in a bar, 159 wave machines, 30, 34, 35 wave pulse, 28 wave train, 29 waves, 18, 28 time lapse diagrams, 31 traveling, ... 100 tuned, 277 vibrating, 154, 163 Memory of pitch, 179 Mersenne, Marin, 5, 133 speed of sound, 39 rules for vibrating strings, 133 204.
