  • Music ByDiana Deutsch
  • Synthesizer [Synthesized By]Jean-Claude Risset, John R. Pierce, Max Mathews


Included in 242-page hard cover book.
Appendix I is a detail description of the recorded musical sound examples.

"Some of the examples were synthesized by Max Mathews and [John R. Pierce] at IRCAM in 1979. Many were created by Elizabeth Cohen at Stanford University, with the cooperation and advice of John Chowning and the assistance of Andrew Schloss and David Jaffe. Diana Deutsch allowed me to use recordings of some of her musical paradoxes, and Max Mathews allowed me to use his brasslike violin sounds. The rest of examples were synthesized by Jean-Claude Risset, using Max Mathew's Music V program, mostly in Marseille (at the Laboratoire d'Informatique et Acoustique, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) and a few at Bell Laboratories and IRCAM."

John Robinson Pierce March 27, 1910 April 2, 2002, was an American engineer and author. He worked extensively in the fields of radio communication, microwave technology, computer music, psychoacoustics, and science fiction. As a sideline to his professional career he wrote science fiction for many years under various names: John Pierce, John R. Pierce, and J. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, he earned his PhD from Caltech, and died in Sunnyvale, California, from complications of Parkinson's. Xii, 242 pages : 24 cm .

Harvey E. 7 out of 5 stars 18. This book comes from an expert who does an excellent job in connecting the dots between the sound generation, the physical and mathematical properties of that sound, the psychoacoustics and the perception. Also very valuable coverage of music production aspects. Read more. John Pierce was an electrical engineer by training who was intrigued by musical sound. After a distinguished career in communications he delved into the intricacies of the sounds of music, culminating in the publishing of this book, The Science of Musical Sound, in 1983. As the book jacket states, His joy in the discovery that physics and mathematics can be sources of insight into understanding why we hear music as we do. The book goes on to explain how we hear and what we can hear as we appre John Pierce was an electrical engineer by training who was intrigued by musical sound. Through many historical and scientific references, electronics engineer J. Pierce 1910-2002 shows how music is grounded in mathematics, whether we are talking of sound waves, pitch, echo, human hearing, auditorium acoustics, etc. John R. Behind the creation of any musical sound lie the complex processes of physics, electronics, mathematics, and human perception. The interplay of these factors is the focus of John R. In The Science of Musical Sound, John Pierce combines an explanation of the physics of musical instruments with. John Robinson Pierce was among those researchers that in the Fifties, at Bell Labs, have experienced the musical use of the computer. In 1983 he want to publ. In 1983 he want to publish this book, The Science of Musical Sound, to present an authoritative panorama of the features about sound as heard in music. The Sound of Music is a musical with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a book by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse. It is based on the 1949 memoir of Maria von Trapp, The Story of the Trapp Family Singers. Set in Austria on the eve of the Anschluss in 1938, the musical tells the story of Maria, who takes a job as governess to a large family while she decides whether to become a nun.
