The ISCE is presenting a course for sound engineers to gain a better understanding of how sound behaves after it leaves the loudspeakers.
Called Making Waves, the course will delve deeper into the world of sounds and communications, says the ISCE.People will learn what sound is, how it travels, the relationship between the speed of sound, wavelength and frequency, amplitude, how the decibel works, equal loudness contours and the implications of frequency weighting, point, line and plane sources and their propagation, air absorption, reverberation, diffraction, interference, temperate and the speed of sound, refraction and The Doppler effect.
The course is taught by Tony Stacey MInstSCE, who has written and presented a number of papers on various electro-acoustic related subjects for both the Institute of Acoustics and the Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers.
It will be held on 15 September at Production Park, Leeds and is a five minute walk from Moorthorpe Station. There is also free parking on-site.
