MUS 27 Sonic Spectrum

The aim of this course is further develop students’ abilities in analyzing and synthesizing sound objects by acquiring a working understanding of the sonic spectrum. Applications of the spectrum include analysis and visualization of music by Fourier analysis, advanced audio synthesis via spectrum modification, and understanding human hearing as analogous to a Fourier analysis. Musical spectrum properties such as pitch, timbre, consonance and dissonance, and polyphony are also covered. Students will be assigned weekly reading, listening, and sound analysis and synthesis exercises.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
