MUSIMATHICS THE MATHEMATICAL FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC PDF

In Musimathics, Loy teaches us the tune, providing a friendly and spirited tour of the mathematics of music—a commonsense, self-contained introduction for the nonspecialist reader. It is designed for musicians who find their art increasingly mediated by technology, and for anyone who is interested in the intersection of art and science. In this volume, Loy presents the materials of music notes, intervals, and scales ; the physical properties of music frequency, amplitude, duration, and timbre ; the perception of music and sound how we hear ; and music composition. Musimathics is carefully structured so that new topics depend strictly on topics already presented, carrying the reader progressively from basic subjects to more advanced ones.

In Musimathics, Loy teaches us the tune, providing a friendly and spirited tour of the mathematics of music—a commonsense, self-contained introduction for the nonspecialist reader. It is designed for musicians who find their art increasingly mediated by technology, and for anyone who is interested in the intersection of art and science. In this volume, Loy presents the materials of music notes, intervals, and scales ; the physical properties of music frequency, amplitude, duration, and timbre ; the perception of music and sound how we hear ; and music composition.

Musimathics is carefully structured so that new topics depend strictly on topics already presented, carrying the reader progressively from basic subjects to more advanced ones. Cross-references point to related topics and an extensive glossary defines commonly used terms. The book explains the mathematics and physics of music for the reader whose mathematics may not have gone beyond the early undergraduate level. Calling himself "a composer seduced into mathematics," Loy provides answers to foundational questions about the mathematics of music accessibly yet rigorously.

The topics are all subjects that contemporary composers, musicians, and musical engineers have found to be important. The examples given are all practical problems in music and audio. The level of scholarship and the pedagogical approach also make Musimathics ideal for classroom use. Additional material can be found at a companion web site.

Musimathics: The Mathematical Foundations of Music, Volume 1

Start your review of Musimathics: The Mathematical Foundations of Music, Volume 1 Write a review Jun 16, Wes Devauld rated it liked it I started reading this book because I was hoping that I could leverage my mathematics background to learn some music theory. The author does a decent job bringing together information on a very large topic. The writing is casual, and the author builds up both music theory and mathematical theory so that the writing is accessible to most. Being that I have a fairly deep understanding of mathematics, I found most of explanations of mathematics to be a waste of time but if you are reading this book I started reading this book because I was hoping that I could leverage my mathematics background to learn some music theory.
