Frequency-Domain Representation of Sound — w/ Prof. Mike Frengel

Music Composition and Technology Professor Mike Frengel will be giving a talk on the spectral-domain representation of sound next Monday! Grab a slice of pizza and learn how this representation affects the way we analyze sound and how sound can be transformed. When: Monday, November 7th, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Where: 110 Kariotis Hall Description: Professor Mike Frengel will be discussing spectral-domain (or frequencydomain) representation of sound and how it can be used for the analysis and transformation of sound. While time-domain analysis demonstrates how a signal changes over time, frequency-domain analysis demonstrates how much of a signal lies within a given frequency band over a range of frequencies. It […]
