Pressestimmen

"From his long and successful experience as a composer and computer-music researcher, Gareth Loy knows what is challenging and what is important. 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."--Jean-Claude Risset, Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique, CNRS, FrancePlease note: There should be an acute accent over the first "e" in "Mecanique" in the endorser's affiliation. "Volume 1 of Musimathics is the ideal introduction to the science of musical acoustics and composition theory, and volume 2 succeeds as no other tutorial does in making the theory of computer music and digital signal processing accessible to a broad audience. Loy's typically careful treatment leads to a book that combines readability and fun with exhaustive and meticulous coverage of each of the topics he addresses. It can serve equally well as an introduction and as a desk reference for experts." -- Stephen Travis Pope , CREATE Lab, Department of Music, University of California, Santa Barbara "*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."--Stephen Travis Pope, CREATE Lab, Department of Music, University of California, Santa Barbara "Volume 1 of *Musimathics* is the ideal introduction to the science of musical acoustics and composition theory, and volume 2 succeeds as no other tutorial does in making the theory of computer music and digital signal processing accessible to a broad audience.

Synopsis

This is 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. "Mathematics can be as effortless as humming a tune, if you know the tune," writes Gareth Loy. 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 this volume, 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. "Musimathics" is carefully structured so that new topics depend strictly on topics already presented, carrying the reader progressively from easy subjects to more advanced ones. Cross-references point to related topics and an extensive glossary defines commonly-used terms.

The book explains the mathematics and physics of music for the reader whose mathematics may not have gone beyond the early undergraduate level. Calling himself "a composer seduced into mathematics," Loy provides answers to foundational questions about the mathematics of music accessibly yet rigorously. The topics are all subjects that contemporary composers, musicians, and musical engineers have found to be important. The examples given are all practical problems in music and audio. The level of scholarship and the pedagogical approach also make "Musimathics" ideal for classroom use. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This (and also the second part) is by far one of the best books on the topic. It explains musical and mathematical concepts in a very clear language.

You have to have of course some knowledge of mathematics but you should be able to understand everything if you know a little bit about trigonometry, algebra and complex numbers. No need for differential equations or higher mathematics.

I love this book for not messing around. Using mathematics allows Loy to formulate music theory and acoustics in a very concise way. As a student of mathematics I can't judge the difficulty, but it should be understandable for almost everybody (lots fractions, solving simple equations and a bit of differentiation is almost all that's needed). The range of topics covered in the two books together is breath taking. I'm currently half way through the first book and read it whenever I have a free minute, it's a great read!

Das Buch gibt einen guten Überblick über alles, was mit Mathematik, Musik und Schallausbreitung zu tun hat. Liest sich gut und ist selbst für jemanden wie mich, die auch beruflich mit dem Thema Akustik zu tun hat, noch interessant.
