Synopsis: "Garage Band Theory" by Duke Sharp (who draws upon his own 30 years of experience and expertise as a professional musician and a decade as a music teacher) is non-academic, practical, useful theory for living-room pickers and working musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play.
Recognizing that he wasn't getting through, Gordon Davidson explained to me his "rubber band theory." When Gordon was a young stage manager/assistant director, he told me, he came to the theatre backwater of Los Angeles, planning to stay for a few months until the rubber band of reality snapped him back to the place where he and every other self-respecting theatre artist belonged: New York.
Tomorrow the garden will host the second youth festival with live performances by local bands The Big Band Theory, Atoutaleme and the Windcraft Band, dance performances by the Rebel Dancers, a human library, a youth hunt, live experiments, a photo booth, kids' corner and more.
We talk about loudness, but never use sones to quantify it; we talk about roughness, but rarely frame it in terms of critical band theory; we talk about pitch, but rarely recognize that it depends on timbre; we talk about vocal fry, but don't relate it to periodicity detection in the auditory system.
In 1960, Kaiser proposed the band theory stating that the radiation occurs in the regions where the two filamentary currents on the neighboring wires are in-phase [3].
The working principle of a double-arm Archimedean spiral antenna can be explained with current band theory. If the length difference between two arms is half of the wavelength, the radiation on the adjacent spiral arms is superimposed.
"They don't obey conventional band theory," Parkin said.
Chirine Atat, a fifth-year medical student and keyboardist in band the Big Band Theory who also played the medical talent show last year, said she welcomed the opportunity to play on a slightly bigger scale this year.
Coverage here encompasses the history of Si, MEMS, and NEMS, followed by discussion of crystallography, quantum mechanics, the band theory of solids, the silicon single crystal, photonics, the quantum hall effect, and superconductivity.
