    The idea that the harmonic frequencies of one note often line up with the fundamental frequencies of other notes is presented. This is followed by a discussion of open and closed tubes, which also exhibit harmonics because of their structure and which behave similarly to several common musical instruments. The section closes with a discussion of the harmonics associated with a leaf blower. Sound Healing - Ancient Sounds By Annaliese and John Stuart Reid Most ancient cultures used the seemingly magical power of sound to heal. Sound healing had almost disappeared in the west until the s when acoustic researchers discovered ultrasound and its medical properties.

Harmonics. Any sound, not matter what the source, is caused by something vibrating. Without vibration, there can be no sound. These vibrations cause the air particles next to the source to vibrate, and those air particles, in turn, cause the particles next to them to vibrate, and so on and so on, creating a sound like a wave in water, the farther out the sound wave moves, the weaker.

A harmonic series (also overtone series) is the sequence of frequencies, musical tones, or pure tones in which each frequency is an integer multiple of a fundamental. Pitched musical instruments are often based on an acoustic resonator such as a string or a column of air, which oscillates at numerous modes simultaneously.

At the frequencies of each vibrating mode, waves travel in both. Genre/Form: Early works: Additional Physical Format: Print version: Smith, Robert, Harmonics, or The philosophy of musical sounds. London, Printed for T.

This book, written by a leading specialist on ancient music, concentrates particularly on the theorists' methods and purposes and the controversies that their various approaches to the subject s: 2.

When the lengths of two strings are a simple ratio—1/2, 2/3, and so on—the notes together sound harmonious. Pythagoras believed that the universe itself hummed with its own harmony—beautiful. A harmonic is any member of the harmonic term is employed in various disciplines, including music, physics, acoustics, electronic power transmission, radio technology, and other is typically applied to repeating signals, such as sinusoidal waves.

A harmonic of such a wave is a wave with a frequency that is a positive integer multiple of the frequency of the original wave. His theory of music reconciles the ancient harmonic system of just intonation with the modern system of twelve-tone temperament.

Saying that the way we think music is far from the way we do music, Mathieu explains why certain combinations of sounds Reviews: The musica universalis (literally universal music), also called music of the spheres or harmony of the spheres, is an ancient philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of celestial bodies—the Sun, Moon, and planets—as a form of "music" is not thought to be audible, but rather a harmonic, mathematical or religious concept.
