Digital sound analysis provides a way to examine sound visually and to manipulate its various elements. Anyone working with music will find something of interest in computer-aided sound analysis. Professor Fales will present a variety of projects that have been completed using digital sound analysis, addressing questions important to historical musicologists, ethnomusicologists, theorists, and composers.
