Topic: A Day of Audio Events
DESCRIPTION of the All DAY
Boston University College of
Engineering and the Boston
section of the AES have collaborated to provide
a day of unique audio events to be held at BU's
Photonics Center. In addition to talks on some of
the latest research in audio perception (did you
know your ear acts as an "analog" DSP
system?) and understanding why music even sounds
like music and not fingernails on a chalkboard.
We'll hear from one of the leaders in electromagnetic
analysis of guitar pickups to peel back some of
the mystery in guitar sound. Registration is required
because many events require an accurate headcount.
Coffee and Lunch are provided, and Donations to
the BAES are optional on their website: www.paypal.me/bostonaesorg
The afternoon will feature a
DIY hands-on segment in the Photonics 105 lab. It
has fully outfitted lab benches with scopes, power
supplies, and signal generators for some hands-on
activities, including the construction of an audio
