This vintage reference on musical acoustics and function perform starts with a short advent to the basics of acoustics and the iteration of musical sounds. It then discusses the details of the sounds made through the entire regular tools in a latest orchestra in addition to the human voice, the best way the sounds made by means of those tools are dispersed and the way the room into which they're projected impacts the sounds.

Example text

This articulation, emphasized by the nature of the tone entrance, can be further enhanced when tones in the frequency neighborhood are excited shortly prior to the actual tone. ’’ In score example 2, there are even harmonically placed double grace notes which give the accent to the heavy beat. While it is possible to use the ability to obtain an audibly precise, recognizable entrance, as a further criterion to evaluate the ability to address the instrument, the strength of the articulation as a means of artistic expression is subject to the playing technique of the musician.

6 Fluctuations in the Quasistationary Part Changes of the vibration excitation during a tone also need to be considered as unsteadiness in the vibration process, even if they are significantly less noticeable than during the starting transient and the decay. Persistent statistical fluctuations of the excitation are however, finally the reason for the noise admixture to the sound of the instrument, as discussed earlier. The measure of these variations transmits an impression of the stability or – in the negative case – the uncertainty of the tone.

2 shows the transition from abstract model presentation to real tones. It contains three dimensional sound spectra as measurement results of the analysis of three staccato tones with equal pitch, and approximately equal duration, however, of different tonal character. Differing numbers of partial vibrations are recognized. Furthermore, in the partial picture for the firm violin staccato, a vibrato becomes apparent in the form of a slight wave motion of the individual partials. The tone onset for example, occurs most rapidly in the bassoon, and is largely simultaneous for all partials, while the partials in the violin enter in part only with delay.
