The Physics and Psychoacoustics of Sound - 1 [Vintage]


The first in a four part series where Matthew Griffin takes us through just what is sound. To do this we first take a look at our ears and how we hear. Next up are the elements in the sound wave itself and how it interacts with our environment .We also discuss its physical properties, how it behaves, and how it's like a jumping rope. Also addressed is timbre, which is why a clarinet sounds different from an oboe, and why my voice sounds different from yours. A stunning journey into the scientific side of music!
