My Research

My interest in research falls into three categories:

  • Understanding how best to characterize instruments at the early stages of making and as they go through the steps of assembly and finishing, all the way through being ‘played-in’.
  • How to relate this characteristics at each of these stages to one another, so as to understand how altering at one stage effects later stages.
  • How to relate the characteristics of the completed instruments to the acoustic experience of the listener, typically described in tonal qualities of the instrument (for example ‘bright’, ‘dark’, ‘resonant’).

The main tools for these investigations will be the acoustic responses of the instruments as measured by frequency spectrum analysis and modern signal processing theory.

Look here, and watch for posts, as I continue to add to this section.
