Discover the exciting world of electroacoustic music and learn to make music with sounds.


A sonogram is able to show the relative distribution of sound wave energy within a sound, over time. It can be a useful visual tool for understanding how sounds operate and for identifying the most prominent concentrations of sound wave energy (PartialA strong concentration of sound wave energy at a specific pitch. All sounds that have a pitch are made up or partials.More infopartials). It can also be very useful in helping to identify and eliminate unwanted portions of a sound, such as noise or fixed pitches caused by electronic equipment.
