Meandering Media

Meandering Sound

About

In this lecture we will look at sound signals as meandering curves in time.

  • Mathematical Functions — in the 1st part, we will learn how to create curves using mathematical functions.
  • Curves of Sound — in the 2nd part, we will learn how to make audible curves in time and space.

Goals

  • Basics of mathematical functions
  • Polar coordinates
  • Harmonic synthesizer
  • Sound synthesis in Processing
