The Physics and Psychoacoustics of Sound - 2 [Vintage]


In session 2 we again take a look at the scientific side of sound. This week, we're going to take our mastery of the physics of sound and look at different tuning systems, how they came about, and what makes them unique. We'll talk about the difference between a tempered tuning system and a Pythagorean tuning system in Western Music, and we'll talk about a few different tuning systems from around the world (and even some alternate tuning systems developed in the 20th century by avant-garde composers.).
