For example, the band “Atlas Genius” uses instruments as a way to enhance their music because the instruments are the main components that build a strong meaningful song. The rythme of the guitar can be translated in a lot of ways. For instance, the guitar represents a lot of different things to a lot different people however main thing that the guitar represents is music in which it expresses how the person is feeling. Overall the guitar represents joy and an outlet to say ... ... middle of paper ... ...t is passed down to further generations.

1 Audible Architecture An exploration of the sound problems in theatrical spaces and how active acoustic systems can help. The architectural properties of a space are the most important contributor to its’ acoustical qualities. However, not every space is crafted perfectly in regards to acoustics, especially in the case of multipurpose performance spaces. This paper will look at the sound technologies available today and how they can be used to mediate and solve acoustical problems due to imperfections within the architecture. It will discuss different difficulties and problems in the planning and designing phase of the theatre spaces themselves, and possible digital solutions.
Acoustic designers create the plan for performance spaces like concert halls as well as recording studios, and any other space that needs to provide a quality listening environment. They may also be involved in specifying equipment to provide sound reinforcement in the venue. Some acoustic design firms offer a full range of services, which may include site analysis, interior design, lighting, power and HVAC systems, wire management, budgeting, construction administration, and acoustic tuning (Droney).
The current technology that allows loudspeaker arrays to be digitally controlled is probably not perfect yet. However, it is undoubtedly an advance in the audio industry in terms of innovation and showcase of possibilities for live sound reinforcement. Perhaps comparable to the time when digital audio work stations started to rise, some may dislike or even frown upon new ideas- but over time, it is very likely that this technology will find its place in the world of audio.

While a completely electronic piece can lack emotion and nuance provided by a live orchestra, the combination of both electronic and acoustic elements can create a cohesive piece that utilizes the strengths of both mediums. The manipulation of ordinary sounds can result in especially dramatic, creative, and innovative sounds that enhance a composition's effectiveness. The creation of electronic music requires the composer to work twice as hard to create a composition since the composer must first compose the music and then perform it.
In this figure, M is the structure to which the damper would be attached. From the laws of physics, we know that F = ma and a = F/m. This means that when an external force is applied to a system, such as wind pushing on a skyscraper, there has to be an accleration. Consequently, the people in the skyscraper would feel this acceleration. In order to make the occupants of the building feel more comfortable, tuned mass dampers are placed in structures where the horizontal deflections from the wind's force are felt the greatest, effectively making the building stand relatively still.
However Roman art also had its own original contributions. Opposite to Greek architecture, the Rome’s art was more Complex. It showed more of an interest in beauty and scale. (artchive) The Romans were the first to perfect and incorporate the arch into their archetecture, vault, and dome in architecture. They also discovered a good method to mixing concrete, this allowed the romans to create much more Beautiful architecture.
I will argue that Roman architecture brought about a new way of designing and constructing buildings which the civilisations before had not established to its full potential. Through my conclusion, one should see that Rome used and improved many pre-existing technologies which allowed many newfound techniques. This enabled them to construct buildings such as the Colosseum, with increased complexity and size. It is commonly believed that the Romans were the founders of the arch due to the complex and world famous buildings they have created using it. However, the first signs of the arches came in the form of a triangul... ... middle of paper ... ... Vitruvius described 5 types of roman atrium house: Tuscan, Corinthian, tetrastyle, displuviate, and testudinate (Sear, F. 1982 p.32).
The architect is tapping into the world of acoustics; in this case, achieving the best possible sonic experience through differing techniques : different materials, certain shapes of rooms, sound traps, etcetera. Acoustics and sound, like so many physics branches, starts out relatively simple and quickly becomes a gigantic headache. Massive amounts of planning must go into a large structure such as a concert hall, a dance hall. Even small structures, such as the phonebooth, have hours of careful planning put into their design, in order to achieve the desired effect with the varied sound sources. This page is designed to inform the reader in the basics of acoustics, using the theory behind acoustics and the examples of the concert hall and the dancehall.
According to Bemis (1936) “A new conception of the structure of our modern houses is needed, better adapted not only to the social conditions of our day but also to the modern means of production: factories, machinery, technology and research”. Albert Bemis, US housing manufacturer in the early twentieth century has a vested interest in using technology to advance new concepts in the design of houses. Nevertheless he points to the important relationship of the use of technology in the structural design of housing. However, it is difficult to estimate how far changes in technology were responsible for changes in the design of housing as much of the evidence that has been sourced argues that the social, political and economic environments played a significant role in contributing to these design changes. These environments impacted on the urban form and fabric to unify with technology to create change in the design of housing.
