Spectrum-Timbre: [bright <-> dull] (i.e. brass-like, silvery, brilliant vs. mat, flat), [simple<->complex], [smooth <-> rough]
Frequency Bandwidth: [low <-> high] [narrow (confined to one region)<->broad (occupying large part of frequency domain)]
Resonance: [dry <-> wet], [clipped<->sustaining]
Dynamics/Loudness/Intensity: [consistent <-> fluxuating <-> shifting], [quite<->loud], [dull (distant/soft), bright (close/loud)]
Frequency Domain Density: [thin <-> thick]
Power: [delicate/light<-> muscular/heavy], [weak<->strong]
Event Morphology (instant to instant structures): [consistent/self-similar <-> varied/contrasting] [high salience events, “sonic jewels”], [impulse-attack, attack-decay, graduated continuant]
Note to Noise Continuum: [harmonic pitch (simple sine to complex and bright spectra)<->pitch with noise <->inharmonic with noise <-> all noise]
Pitch/note/tone: : fundamental frequency view [low <-> high] gestural/shape view [mostly steps (smooth) <-> mostly leaps (angular)],
Harmonic: [simple sine tone <-> richly energized harmonic partials (stretched strings, human voices, blown tubes)]
Pitch space: (system of pitch organization based on tones that are in simple ratios to one another) [light <-> dark], [stable<->unstable]
Microtonal: (system of pitch organization based on tones that are in complex ratios to one another)
Micro-tuning: : (slight variations in frequency within simple pitch space used as expressive element)
Pitch language/grammer: [simple <-> complex]
Inharmonic noise: [non-harmonic partials <-> complex noise-like waveforms (gongs, bells)] (uniqueness)(is noise independent element or coupled w/ pitch making?)(how much noise is used in pitch making source?)(how much noise in the onset of the pitch and/or the continuant?)

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
