“The Physical Principles of Sound
An introductory guide to the physical properties of sound and a basic introduction to the acoustics of enclosed spaces.
To aid the understanding of any technical matters relating to sound, as often the case with any discipline, it is crucial to understand the fundamental scientific principles of the subject and how they are commonly interpreted.
This guide offers an introduction to the basic physics of sound including the build up of sound waves and their properties, the speed of sound, how it is shaped in acoustical environments, and how treatment can be applied to listening rooms. This document does not, on the whole, provide advice, but presents information for reference with which to aid an overall understanding of sound in a practical working environment.”
I am away from the man made sounds, in a place full of the howls of the winds, the crash of the waves, the clear black night skies full of stars, and notions of banshees doesn’t seem such a ridiculous idea, the grass is a burnt orange from the harsh storms gale force winds sweeping in from the Atlantic.
My thoughts are with the stone walls, gathered and heaped on stone by stone, in a pattern that has stood for a hundred years or more.
Of turf cut and saved and stacked by the wall, for this harsh winter weather, burnt in the fire that is warming my toes as I write.
I love this place and as I repeated a million times I am from Connemara and proud of it.
This the ocean by by house I recorded one windy afternoon It is an epic noise that echos in your ears while you lie in your bed.
The pull of the ocean never leaves me.
An áit a bhuil do chroí is ann a thabharfas do chosa thú.
Your feet will bring you to where your heart is.
Incredible video, just goes to show the impact of sound on us everyday we are subjected to environmental sounds natural and man made, our bodies are made 70% 85% water. we are effected by the motions of our world the sounds of traffic lights beeping there hurry up and cross the road noises, the sounds of the broken water pipe dripping down on to the footpath. our ears may ignore the the sounds, our subconscious pulls them in and spits them out in the tones of our voice the music we make. pulling tones that seem familiar out seemingly or thin air. These are my thoughts not a learned fact. Our audio landscape impacts the way we think and feel.
