Acoustics is the interdisciplinary science that deals with the study of sound, ultrasound and infrasound (all mechanical waves in gases, liquids, and solids).

Project

Paper Speakers

This project explores the technical, design, and aesthetic possibilities of 2-D, flexible audio speaker technology. The premise underlying this exploration is the idea that sound can be thought of as a physically immediate, transparent and embodied material. The end goal for me is the use of this material for my art practice: Sound Art, Installation, and Composition.

Project

Constellation

Ronald Bruce Smith’s “Constellation for orchestra and live electronics,” produced in collaboration between Berkeley Symphony and UC Berkeley’s Center for Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT).

The World Premiere was given by the Berkeley Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Kent Nagano on November 10, 2000; it was revised in 2003.

Project- the first blog of many

Posted by David Coll on February 16, 2009

This blog marks the beginning of my documentation of an ongoing project concerning the following items. In parentheses are keywords associated with each item.

multi-channel amplifiers (portability, replicability, reliability, power)

metal sheets, and other resonant objects (resonance, materials, portability)

transducers (frequency range, power, attachment method, durability)
