Episode 29 – Resonant Spaces and other Echoes

Happy New Year everyone. The first episode of The Big Note looks at the sonic attributes of given spaces, and more specifically resonance/reverberance. Almost every conceivable space apart from the vacuum of deep space or an anechoic chamber has certain sonic characteristics that will affect how sound behaves within that space. Even solid objects and fluids have sonic characteristics that will change how sound behaves within and through them. We discuss aspects of this sonic characteristic in todays episode as well as play some great music illustrating the theme, as well as other new and old music from Australian artists and elsewhere.
