Acoustics and Psychoacoustics
In these chapters we will give an overview of the physics of the sound event with all its characteristics. We will clarify the concepts of Frequency, Amplitude, and Phase of a wave and then talk about timbre and all its representations and facets.

This section will discuss electroacoustic systems and all the machines that make them up, particularly microphones, mixers, pickups, speakers, and cables. We will also deal with digital chains, thus talking about computers, sound cards, monitors, and the mechanisms underlying the transduction of the signal from analog to digital and vice versa.

In this section, we will analyze the algorithms of the leading sound synthesis techniques with hints at the main hardware and software tools that use them. These are the techniques covered:
Physical models Synthesis
History of Electroacoustic Music
We will look at the history of electroacoustic music, starting with the first instruments for recording and reproducing sound, passing through the concrete music of the Paris school, the electronic music of the Cologne studio, and arriving at the Phonology studio of the RAI in Milan, which attempts to unite the two currents of thought. Finally, we will talk about digital music, new sound synthesis techniques, and spectralism up to the present day.
