Lately I have been slowly regaining interest in studying music again. After high school I studied in conservatories, colleges, and universities for over eight years. I gave up my stagnant performing career aspirations five years ago but had always hoped that perhaps I could start to write music or create sound for various new media products. Well I think this summer, if all goes as planned, may be the time to start.
In search for computer music and sound resources I came across Physics and Psychophysics of music. “An introductory course for students of music that covers what I consider is the necessary basic material needed for working in a recording or electronic music studio. ” “The course is divided into three broad topic areas: Basic principles of the physics of sound, the physiology of hearing, and
the psychophysics of hearing. ”
I haven’t read much yet but it looks promising.
