Sample text

As sound designers we work within an enormous context, an incredibly rich landscape, encompassing physics, maths, psychology, and culture. The history of sound design goes back to before the Greeks and Romans1 and brings with it such a body of terminology and theory that it’s easy to get lost. Since we are concentrating on the general case of sound I will not dwell on musical instruments, song and musical scales, nor most of the five decades of analog electronic theory that precede digital representations.

But, as with light and a mirror, if the wave hits the boundary at an angle θ then it’s reflected at the same angle θ on the other side of the normal line. 10 Wave behaviour at a boundary for reflected and refracted waves. one medium to another, so is sound. 10 follows Snell’s law where the sine of the reflected and incident angles are in the same ratio as the speeds in each medium. Unlike light, low-frequency sound has large wavelengths. As long as the wavelength of a sound is small compared to the boundary size these rules hold true, but where the boundary is small or the wavelength is large the effects change.

16 Analog systems (electrical, mechanical) of a hammered string. 36 Physical Sound carried by the hammer (either a mass or electrical capacitance) and radiated through an outlet which is the sounding board (shown as a mechanical surface or loudspeaker). What is interesting is that any sound-producing object, no matter how complex, can be reduced to a network system similar to this. A modern analysis is given by Jean-Marie Adrien in “Representations of Musical Signals” under the heading of “Modal Synthesis,” and software systems to construct physical network models such as Cordis Anima and others have been developed where you can plug together masses, springs dampers, and energy sources.
