Overtone Analysis Of A Holtkamp Organ Using Fourier Methods, Mario Harper, David Berg 2013 Utah State University

Overtone Analysis Of A Holtkamp Organ Using Fourier Methods, Mario Harper, David Berg

Student Showcase

This research is a study of the similarities and differences of the four sound families (principal, flute, reed, and string) of the organ, specifically, we used the organ located in the Kent Hall at USU. This experiment focuses on the mechanics of the organ, turning sound into mathematical signals, and performing Fourier analysis using computer methods. We conclude that a certain family of pipes (flute pipe family) had the most similarities to the “natural” series while the reed family was the most variant. We show the steps taken in our experiment and attempt to explain the variance and correlation of ...


Sleep Frequency, Rebecca M. Wagner 2013 Bard College

Sleep Frequency, Rebecca M. Wagner

Senior Projects Fall 2013

I have three main interests as a sound artist. They are 1) field recordings 2) the physics of a sound wave and 3) how sound resonates within, around, by, and through us. My library of sounds is comprised entirely on my own field recordings, collected since I was 13 from several countries. Although my first recordings were captured long before I had ever heard the term musique concrete, I consider myself a contemporary musique concrete artist, making electronic music composed of natural sounds, altered, edited, or distorted, then translated to the ears through creative means.

In my moderation show last ...

Malcolm Chisholm: An Evaluation Of Traditional Audio Engineering, Paul Linden 2013 Butler University

Malcolm Chisholm: An Evaluation Of Traditional Audio Engineering, Paul Linden

Scholarship and Professional Work - Communication

The career of longtime Chicago area audio engineer and notable Chess Records session recorder Malcolm Chisholm (1929-2003) serves as a window for assessing the stakes of technological and cultural developments around the birth of Rock & Roll. Chisholm stands within the traditional art-versus-commerce debate as an example of the post-World War II craftsman ethos marginalized by an incoming, corporate-determined paradigm. Contextual maps locate Chisholm’s style and environment of audio production as well as his impact within the rebranding of electrified Blues music into mainstream genres like Rock music. Interviews of former students and professional associates provide first-hand accounts of core ...

Exploration Of Physical Computing: Digital Interfaces Using Microsoft Kinect And Peggy 2 Led Matrix, Jeffrey Franklin 2012 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Exploration Of Physical Computing: Digital Interfaces Using Microsoft Kinect And Peggy 2 Led Matrix, Jeffrey Franklin

Liberal Arts and Engineering Studies

Physical computing, or more specifically social immersive media, is an offshoot of New Media that incorporates interactive physical systems (software/hardware systems) to sense and respond to the analog world. This serves as a creative framework for understanding our own relationship to the digital world. In this project, computer vision is incorporated as a medium between both input and output through the use of two cameras, a typical webcam and a Microsoft Kinect. For the first part of the project, a webcam streams visual data into a computer program which interpolates the video data into a 25x25 virtual dot matrix ...

What Studios Do, Eliot Bates 2012 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

What Studios Do, Eliot Bates

Publications and Research

This essay is focused around a seemingly simple question – what do recording studios do? First, a clarification. I am not primarily asking “what are studios” or “what do people do in studios,” two comparatively straightforward questions that are tangentially addressed in academic and trade writing. Rather, I wish to consider some of the ways in which the studio itself shapes the kinds of social and musical performances and interactions that transpire within. I contend that studios must be understood simultaneously as acoustic environments, as meeting places, as container technologies, as a system of constraints on vision, sound and mobility, and ...


Stret-To, Davis Butner 2012 University of Pennsylvania

Stret-To, Davis Butner

Posters

"stret-to" visualizes sonic vibrations through structural light patterns. Davis's poster features a topography of electronic composition, based on the work of Iannis Xenakis. The black and white topography compares to the light grids, all of which can be incorporated into a musical performance. Key visual elements:

  • Musical topography
  • Light patterns
  • Juxtaposition of black/white and color images

This was created for the Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships (CURF) Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Performance Space For Niche And Emerging Artists, Bradford S. Hutchison 2012 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Performance Space For Niche And Emerging Artists, Bradford S. Hutchison

Masters Theses 1911 - February 2014

While large performance spaces fulfill important cultural, civic, architectural and artistic needs, few performing artists begin their careers playing in large halls. As in professional sports, the “minor leagues” play a critical role for professional performing artists by allowing them to both reach out to new audiences and hone their performance skills. Niche and emerging performing artists, therefore, rely on small performance spaces as their principal means exercising their craft. In addition to size, one important difference between large and small performance spaces is the criticality of the social experience. Small performance spaces are often informal, with entertainment being secondary ...

Chapter from Dublin’s Future: New Visions for Ireland’s Capital City, Dr. Lorcan Sirr (ed.), (Dublin: The Liffey Press, 2011).

Dublin’s Future is a collection of essays, which, for the first time, recognises that the future of the island’s largest and most important urban conurbation is about more than the engineering of roads and the colouring of development plans.

Seán Mac Erlaine’s chapter explores the performance of music in Ireland’s capital city, documenting the currently vibrant use of alternative art spaces for niche markets of improvised, experimental and non-mainstream music practice.
