Research in the Acoustics group focuses on the voice, on musical instruments and the instrument-player interaction, and more general issues such as information in music. We have a large web site presenting our research at a non-technical level, as well as our formal scientific publications. The group has developed techniques for rapid, precise measurement of acoustic impedance spectra and transfer functions under a range of conditions, for producing precisely known acoustic currents and for minimising harmonic distortion. Our research is supported by the Australian Research Council, and by instrument makers, music teachers, performers and ensembles.
