MUSIMATHICS PDF

A commonsense, self-contained introduction to the mathematics and physics of music; essential reading for musicians, music engineers, and anyone interested in the intersection of art and science. 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 Volume 1, 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. The examples given are all practical problems in music and audio.

That comprehensiveness makes Musimathics both exciting and enlightening. The book is crystal clear, so that even advanced issues appear simple.

Musimathics will be essential for those who want to understand the scientific foundations of music, and for anyone wishing to create or process musical sounds with computers.

Musimathics is destined to be required reading and a valued reference for every composer, music researcher, multimedia engineer, and anyone else interested in the interplay between acoustics and music theory. This is truly a landmark work of scholarship and pedagogy, and Gareth Loy presents it with quite remarkable rigor and humor.

Volume I: Musical Elements

The Mathematical Foundations of Music. There is a PDF version of Musimathics floating around the web. If you see these PDFs posted, please let me know so I can post a take-down request to the website owner. It took me ten years to write these books, working late into the night most days to get it published. I also respond to readers questions and errata notices. Please don't post the PDF version on the open internet; please either buy the paper books or buy the ebook, but don't just rip me off. Reprint editions are now available for both volumes that correct almost all errata from the first printings.
