Parameters of Sound

Disciplines of Study [DoS]  >  Acoustics  ]

Musical parameters are all sound or compositional components which can be isolated or ordered. Examples include frequency, density, intensity, spectral identity and time. Compositions employing a parametric approach to construction are based on an ideology allowing for this specific type of separation of musical components.
