Musical Mathematics; On The Art And Science of Acoustic Instruments
Musical Mathematics is the definitive tome for the adventurous musician. Integrating mathematics, music history, and hands-on experience, this volume serves as a comprehensive guide to the tunings and scales of acoustic instruments from around the world. Author, composer, and builder Cris Forster illuminates the mathematical principles of acoustic music, offering practical information and new discoveries about both traditional and innovative instruments.With this knowledge readers can improve, or begin to build, their own instruments inspired by Forster's creationsshown in 16 color plates. For those ready to step outside musical conventions and those whose curiosity about the science of sound is never satisfied, Musical Mathematics is the map to a new musical world. Musical Mathematics discusses the physical properties of musical instruments, analyzes the mathematical origins of scales in western culture an in music from around the world, and investigates myriad tunings that surpass the standard tweleve-tone scale routinely built into factory produced instrument.
