LMJ 22: Acoustics
Immersed as we are in electronically mediated sound, at the end of the day---whether it’s coming from ukuleles or earbuds---sound reaches us through acoustic pressure. The sheer physicality of sound, and its quirky interaction with our sense of hearing, has driven many a composer and sound artist to go back to the "year zero" in music---before the codification of melody, rhythm and harmony---and explore fundamental aspects of the physics and perception of sound.
LMJ22 highlights writings on the role of acoustics and psychoacoustics in music and audio art. Authors include Ellen Fullman; David Burraston; Robert Dick; Owain Pedgley and Eddie Norman; John Driscoll; Daniel Wilson; Jim Murphy, Ajay Kapur and Dale Carnegie; Woon Seung Yeo, Keunhyoung Kim, Seunghun Kim and Jeong-seob Lee; Tim Feeney; Phil Edelstein; David Prior; Ellen Band; Richard Glover; Henry Gwiazda; Kristian Derek Ball; Christopher Haworth; Lewis Kaye; Scot Gresham-Lancaster and Peter Sinclair; Alex Wand; and David First.
