Spectral tuning and its application to instrumental and vocal composition

Telese, Marciano


This thesis demonstrates the use of spectral tuning in musical composition. Spectral tuning is the use of spectral analysis, most often a fast Fourier transform (FFT) of audio, to provide frequencies that correlate to musical pitches. These pitches then define a spectral tuning. The first chapter outlines a thread of historical and conceptual influences on spectral tuning techniques. Several tuning systems are presented to place spectral tuning in context with other tuning systems. The field of...[Show more]
