24 True/False questions

  1. RhythmThe pattern of durations in music. In western music these patterns relate to...

          

  2. Scale(Aucoustic) The interval between two tones with the fundamental frequency ration of 1:2 or thereabouts; a listener may tolerate and even prefer an inexact one-to-two correspondence. The octave percept carries with it the strong impression that the two tones share the same pitch, although they are clearly seperated in pitch height

          

  3. Timbre(Auditory) "tone color/quality" terms that denote properties of sound (besides pitch and loudness) which combine to produce an overall auditory identity of character. (recognizing a specific persons voice over the phone)

          

  4. Octave(Aucoustic) The interval between two tones with the fundamental frequency ration of 1:2 or thereabouts; a listener may tolerate and even prefer an inexact one-to-two correspondence. The octave percept carries with it the strong impression that the two tones share the same pitch, although they are clearly seperated in pitch height

          

  5. Harmonic(Aucoustic) Any relationship described by superparticular integers such as 1"2"3"4..., Any parial of a complex tone whos frequency is an integral multiple of the frequency of the fundamental of that tone

          

  6. Pitch (and pitch class)(Auditory) Mental sensation of a tone class

          

  7. Intensity...

          

  8. Decibel/Bel(Aucoustic) One tenth of a Bel, or the ratio in sound intensity of about 1:26:1

          

  9. Tone Chroma(Auditory) Perceptual similarity of tones an octave apart; the perceptual manifestation of pitch class

          

  10. Spectrum/complexity(Aucoustic) synonymous with half-step. The smallest pitch increment in the twelve-tone equal tempered set. The terms semitone and half-step may stand for either a change in pitch name (ex E-F) or a chromatic alteration with pitch name retained (ex F-F#)

          

  11. Diatonic(Aucoustic) Any relationship described by superparticular integers such as 1"2"3"4..., Any parial of a complex tone whos frequency is an integral multiple of the frequency of the fundamental of that tone

          

  12. (Tone) Partial(Aucoustic) Any component of a complex tone, including the fundamental. A tone partial may or may not be periodic; its duration may be equal to that of the complex tone, or it may have an exceedingly short duration

          

  13. Semitone(Aucoustic) Any partial of a complex tone that has a frequency greater than that of the fundamental. The term has been largely abandoned in favor of partial or upper partial

          

  14. Interval...

          

  15. Amplitude(Aucoustic) synonymous with half-step. The smallest pitch increment in the twelve-tone equal tempered set. The terms semitone and half-step may stand for either a change in pitch name (ex E-F) or a chromatic alteration with pitch name retained (ex F-F#)

          

  16. Meter...

          

  17. Cents(Aucoustic) Unit of pitch distance (or interval) corresponding to 1/100m of a semitone

          

  18. KeyRecurring pattern of strong and weak typically in combinations of twos and threes

          

  19. Frequency (and hertz)(Aucoustic) The rate at which a vibration completes a full cycle. Hz is a single cycle per second

          

  20. JND (Just Noticeable Difference)(Aucoustic) The rate at which a vibration completes a full cycle. Hz is a single cycle per second

          

  21. Fundamental...

          

  22. Overtone(Aucoustic) Any partial of a complex tone that has a frequency greater than that of the fundamental. The term has been largely abandoned in favor of partial or upper partial

          

  23. Loudness(Auditory) Subjective psychological correlate of amplitude of sound intensity perceived

          

  24. Beat (tone)(Aucoustic) synonymous with half-step. The smallest pitch increment in the twelve-tone equal tempered set. The terms semitone and half-step may stand for either a change in pitch name (ex E-F) or a chromatic alteration with pitch name retained (ex F-F#)
