Leonardo Music Journal :: Psychoacoustics
Call for Papers :: Proposals due 15 October 2011
Leonardo Music Journal is soliciting articles and artist’s statements on the role of acoustics and psychoacoustics in music and audio art. Although we are immersed in electronically mediated sound, sound reaches us through acoustic pressure. The sheer physicality of sound, and its quirky interaction with our sense of hearing, has driven many a composer and sound artist to go back to the “year zero” in music – before the codification of melody, rhythm and harmony – and explore fundamental aspects of the physics and perception of sound. Inquiries should be addressed to Nicholas Collins, Editor in Chief at email@example.com
