In this groundbreaking book he reveals the secrets of sound design. Its already up and running – click here! We are fans of Bernard Parmegiani and so we now have all of his CDs in stock, including the newly released l’Oeuvre Musicale.

Adding two different sets of vibrato to two different groups of partials within desigb same spectrum will cause the two sets of partials to be perceived independently – the single aural stream will split into two. When only a few components are left, any sound is reduced to a delicate tracery of shifting sine-wave constituents.

Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. It can be more or less focused towards static or moving pitches, using band-pass filters or delay see Chapter 2and it can have its own complex internal structure. Vocoding hence works well on noisy sounds e. We may replace wavesets with a waveform of a different shape but the same amplitude waveset substitution: Spectral thinking is integral to all sound composition and should be borne in mind as we proceed to explore other aspects of this world.

At each moment there is a composite spectrum for these events and any portion of it could be grist for the mill of sound composition. In a complexly evolving signal especially a noisy one each waveset will be different, often radically different, to the previous one, but we will not perceptually register the content of that waveset in its own right see the discussion of time-frames in Chapter 1.

Different sounds with or without harmonicity, soft or hard-edged, spectrally bright or dull, grain-like, sustained, evolving, iterated or sequenced may produce different qualities of noise see Chapter 8 on Texture.

Very short inharmonic sounds will sound percussive, like drums, strangely coloured drums, or akin to wood-blocks Sound example 3. If the frequency data is held constant, the channel amplitudes loudnesses continue to vary as in the original signal but the trrevor frequencies wisharrt not change. But, as we have already made clear, many of the areas discussed in the different chapters of this book overlap considerably.

Appendix p52 Sound example 3. However, we all use articulate formant control when speaking. Again, this may be cesign with simple sound input but complex sounds are just changed in spectral “feel” as a rapidly changing sine-wave is no less perceptually chaotic than a rapidly changing arbitrary wave-shape. The following manipulations suggest themselves.

In the sound examples the sound with a zudible attack has wavesets replaced by square waves, and then by sine waves. In particular, put forward the ideas of sound landscape handling sound images and representation using soundand sound transformation as a unifying principle for composing, traditionally or with sounds.

Appendix p51 or reverse wavesets or groups of N wavesets waveset reversal: I wrote to several friends asking them to collect voices from their local radio stations, and also recorded voices from TV stations via satellite dish, assembling sounds from voices in 26 different languages. Desigh can now download a selection of single tracks of music from our website. Trevkr the partials are not in this relationship, and provided the relationships from window to window remain relatively stable, the ear’s attempts to extract harmonicity whole number relationships amongst the partials will result in our hearing several pitches in the sound.


With large numbers of windows in a shuffled group we produce an audible rearrangements of signal segments, akin to brassage, but with only a few windows we create another process of sound blurring, particularly apparent in rapid sequences.

This feature can often trecor enhanced by time-stretching so that the rate of partial change is slowed down.

Thus we may convert all the wavesets to square waves, triangular waves, sine-waves, or even user-defined waveforms. We now have a listings page for concerts, festivals, conferences and workshops of electroacoustic music in the UK.

More importantly, the morphology changing shape of the spectrum is already bell-like.

We may select a window or sets of windows and freeze either the frequency data or the loudness data which we find there over the ensuing signal spectral freezing.

This wisuart can be applied to any source, whether it be spectrally pitched harmonicor inharmonic, and gives us a means of passing from articulate noise to articulate not-noise spectra in a seamless fashion. In general, the effects produced will not be entirely predictable, but they will be tied to the morphology time changing characteristics of the original sound. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. It is possible to extract the time varying spectral contour from one signal and impose it on another, a process originally developed in the analogue studios and known as vocoding no connection with the phase vocoder.

It merely contributes to the more general percept of noisiness.
