  • Comparing Math In Relation To Harmonics And Tonal Color Of Instruments

     Musical Notes Can Count Jerri Pineda Abstract— The development of mathematics involves early connections with music and the basic physics of sound. Mathematics is present in the natural occurrence of the ratios and intervals found in music and modern tuning systems. As people age, their hearing becomes dull and require change in the music ratio and interval to hear the same tune as when young. In like manner, the interval increases until a perfect pitch is heard. In this paper we will examine both the mathematics and music background for these ideas. We will examine the Fourier series representations of sound waves. Furthermore, we will see how they relate to harmonics and tonal color of instruments. The goal in this paper is aimed at exploring…

  • Brimera Sound Envelope Experiment

    Introduction A sound can be separated into two components; envelope and find structure. The envelope is an outline of the waveform that reflects the fluctuation of amplitude of a sound. The envelope can be thought of as the overall morphology of the sound wave given. In a sound wave, the fine structure is the sound within the envelope. The fine structure can be thought of as the more detailed variation of the sound wave because the sound itself moves at a much faster pace than the overall…
