Those Mysterious Existences: Art, Science, Lutherie, and the Classical Guitar

Popular Engineering, Guitar Workshop Returns

Professor Juan Oscar Azaret

This Popular Engineering, Guitar Workshop program will include performances of classical guitar works by Robert Ward, a professor at Northeastern University and Brookline Music School and concert guitarist. The focus will be on the music and how “beautiful and approachable music” is created on a classical guitar as well as how guitars are created. Partially constructed guitars will be available to show the anatomy of the instrument.

The second half of the night will be dedicated to examining sound. Specifically the science and engineering that creates the sound. Participants will be able to “see” sound through the use of a spectrum analyzer, oscilloscope, and vibrating string lab set-ups in an interactive audio visual presentation.

This event is free and open to the public.
