Music and Computers: Symbiotic Learning.
Crenshaw, John H.
Many individuals in middle school, high school, and university settings have an interest in both music and computers. This paper seeks to direct that interest by presenting a series of computer programming projects. The 53 projects fall under two categories: musical scales and musical sound production. Each group of projects is preceded by a short discussion of the relevant underlying musical concepts; in this way, a person who has an interest in music but lacks a strong background should be able to complete the projects without having to refer to outside sources. The musical scales projects do not attempt to produce any sounds and can be solved using any language on any type of hardware. Most of the projects in the musical sound production group do create sound output and require access to a microcomputer system running Pascal, Basic, or another language which allows the user to create sound output. None of the projects require the use of MIDI boards or any external instrumentation. (Author/AEF)
