  • Analysis Of Keiler's Logical Fallacies In Music

    Bernstein’s claims of the harmonic series as basis for all music. He writes that even the “simple diatonic scale requires…gross adjustment” (Keiler, 208). This is indeed true, with the fourth being 29 cents flat, the third 14 cents flat, and the seventh 12 cents flat (as compared to equal temperament tuning). Keiler also says the diatonic scale reaches into the outermost limits of the harmonic series. This is again factual, since the major seventh doesn’t appear until the 15th harmonic, and the minor third appears as the 19th harmonic. The fourth is the 21st harmonic, which pushes Bernstein’s claims to an even more ludicrous position. As Keiler suggests, it may be absurd to attribute the entire diatonic scale to overtones, especially considering a simple fourth as the 21st harmonic that is 29 cents flat.…

The proposed switching frequency variation strategy was able to reduce switching losses up to 20% over the conventional constant switching frequency SVPWM and DPWM2 techniques.

  • Saul Bass: Graphic Designer

    The arm was distorted and had a series of rectangular shapes to form the arm, which bass considered to represent drug addiction. Preminger however disagreed with Bass over which animated sequence with the arm looked the best. Bass argued that “the sequence fell flat without animation” but Preminger disagreed. The official compromise was “staccato-like movements as the arm segments maneuvered through the visual progression”. After this compromise, the sequence went down as a classic in American…
