• I have a personal interest in the differences in methods for sound amplification and reproduction. • A better understanding of the varying methods will ultimately lead to an improved ability to set up more efficient and more specific amplification systems. • I would like to find personal reasoning or justification for apparently ‘better’ or ‘warmer’ sounding amplification with the use of vacuum tube driven amplifiers and power amplifiers. • A study of these systems (and pre-electrical/natural amplification) and how/why they have been implemented will hopefully also enable me to better understand sound projection and environmental effects on sound in a given location or room. This will prove more than useful for me in other areas, in my music recording and production for example.
D1 - Analyse the importance of inter-agency emergency planning for major incidents Inter-agency planning produces many benefits and positive outcomes which enhance the effectiveness of the services and the organisations involved in the planning process of major incidents. This in turn benefits the public as it may mean that because of the enhanced co-ordination because of the inter-operability, more life is preserved, there are fewer problems for the infrastructure and normality is resumed faster. The running theme throughout this piece will be one thing, efficiency. The main thing about interoperability in planning of major incidents is that the efficiency of it all benefits the services massively. In different ways, this efficiency provides
By DST, if less energy is being consumed, the opportunities of mankind having a safer and more presentable environment are much higher. Furthermore, DST not only aids the surroundings but also teaches people to use energy wisely. Individuals will be fully aware of the benefits that come with saving energy. Continuous
In the ‘Introductory notes to the Semiotics of Music’ by Phillip Tagg 1999, after a discussion on musical structure it is proposed ‘that definitions of musical structures must, in a semiotic context, be based on information from both the transmitting and receiving ends’ and finds not all structural elements on the transmitting side are musical signifiers. Hence the need to discuss how some musical structures can act as signifiers and how we identify them. From this followed the development of a sign typology of music that identifies four major different types of musical signs: 1) Anaphones 2) Genre Synecdoche 3) Episodic Marker, and 4) Style Indicator. The sign typology is an attempt to give some highly common and everyday semantic practices and mechanisms adequate names to make discussion on these musical structures easier. “Anaphone is a neologism analogous to 'analogy'.
The result showed music produce a big increase and lyrics produce a significant decrease. These results are recent and reliable because it was tested but it might not be accurate because music affects people differently. If they were not in the laboratory, the result might be different. The author hypothesized that art provides a means of control in order for a variable which might be music to be introduced into someone’s personality. This could lead to a long term developmental change.
What may be real to one may not be to another. Whether it may be physical or critical thinking, ‘reality’ in many different senses alters and may only be correct to its beholder. Technology plays a huge role on society today, instead of having technology as a tool to help grow and understand; we as society consider it a lifestyle. Technology shapes, alters and manipulates mankind in many different ways shapes and forms, which in result makes up ‘reality’. My objective is to pick one form of technology, analyze it and explain how our reality can be affected by it; the form of technology I chose to research was music.
Oliver Lodge successfully demonstrated, in an experiment, in 1887 radio transmission of an electromagnetic wave from one location to another (Laidler, 1998, p.186). Hertz, however, is credited with furthering Maxwell’s theory by creating a continuous electrical wave, using wire and brass knobs as a receiver and an oscillator, which created electromagnetic waves (Rubin, 2009). Similarly, Samuel Morse, demonstrated Joseph Henry’s theories of the electric telegraph in 1835 by creating signals of pulsing current that could be sent via wire (The Hutchinson Encyclopedia of Science , 2004 p. 3191). These technological milestones helped lead to the development of radio. Gregory Benford explains how, Marconi’s interest in developing the radio was sparked somewhat by accident, in his article Scientist Heroes: Fantasy & Science.
Dylan Hojnacki Dr. Lotto SLHS 2013-12-02 Technology Advancement has Reduced Complex Sound Perception The growth in technology has been experienced in all sectors of operations. Benefits have come along with this growth by enhancing the way different individuals undertake operations. Many have praised and supported the growth because some heights may not have been reached through the utilization of human efforts, alone. However, there have also been negatives effects to these advancements of technology. Understanding the contributions of any advancement in technology helps individuals to critically evaluate its effects as well as perceive its future in society (Christoph, Susanne and Maria 98).
Their lives are more planned and thus have more direction. They have better problems solving skills and are consequently better equipped to handle everyday decisions. * Another trend noticed, is that children of educated parents are more likely to receive an education and have higher cognitive development, than children of uneducated parents. * Educated people are in a better position to contribute more positively to society and even towards the planet, as they understand the implications of their choices and actions. Why do we need to be Educated?
Additionally, environmental sounds and architecture can also have an impact on listening. With the techniques we have today, hearing aids can notably beautify the life for the majority with hearing impairment. Hearing aids are designed to make sounds louder and therefore make it less difficult to hear. Maximum listening aids additionally encompasses the impact to keep sound from becoming too loud and to help lessen surrounding noise. Hearing aid instruments can extensively improve the user’s verbal exchange and can bless the impaired persons with a complete and active lifestyle.
