TH 417 - Acoustics & Pschoacoustics

(3)
The purpose of this course is to expose the student to the fundamentals of acoustics and psychoacoustics. Acoustics is the study of the production, control, transmission, reception, and effects of sound; and the qualities that determined the ability of a specific enclosure of construction (such as a theatre) to reflect sound waves in such a way as to produce proximity, clarity, and fidelity in human hearing. Psychoacoustics is the study of how humans react to sound. Together they form the basis of sound design for live theatre. Students in the area of Sound Design need a fundamental grounding in the physics of sound, and our reactions to it, to perform the tasks required of a designer of sound for theatre-principally, that every member of the audience can hear and understand the actors and the story presented. Prerequisite(s): TH 217
