THEA 3530 - Acoustics and Psychoacoustics

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 determine the ability of a specific enclosure or 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.
