Each species of instrument has its own acoustic characteristics, and the physical structures of instruments vary widely. However, almost all musical instruments depend on the principle of coupled acoustics. That is, in most musical instruments there are two vibrating devices: One generates the sound wave and the other is coupled to it, and ampliﬁes it. The initial vibration that is activated by the performer – for instance by blowing into an oboe or bowing a violin – is often of insuﬃcient energy to be properly heard in a large space or at a distance.
The acoustic structure emphasizes relatively lower frequencies within the range of frequencies presented when the performer produces a higher pitch, and emphasizes relatively higher frequencies when the performer generates a lower pitch. These diﬀerences ultimately reﬂect the fact that a certain (intermediate) range of frequencies is likely to have a higher level of energy across many diﬀerent produced pitches in the trombone. This range ends up being relatively high when one plays a low pitch and relatively low when one plays a high pitch.
Unlike most mammals, human beings cannot move their pinnae toward the direction of sounds; they must move the whole head to achieve this task. Owls, in particular, are extremely accurate at localizing sound sources in part because of their capacity to rotate the head by about 270 degrees (not exactly a complete rotation, as commonly thought). Further, the entire facial ruﬀ 13:00:16:03:10 Page 43 Page 44 44 Foundations (the long feathers on the head and neck) serves a similar function to the human pinna, as these sound-reﬂecting feathers provide cues as to the source of an auditory event (Knudsen & Knudsen, 1989).
