Music Theory Part 2 - The Overtone (Harmonic) Series

 
Published on March 17, 2017

Part 2 of my introduction to Music Theory series, this video details the nature of acoustic instruments generating COMPLEX TONES, and goes into detail into what makes up a complex tone - the overtone (or harmonic) series. This mathematical sequence is the basis of all pitch relationships in music and also forms what people perceive as the "color" or timbre of a particular instrument. Next week, we dive into Math, so bring your pencils! The composer on the thumbnail is lutenist Vincenzo Galilei, famous for his contributions to music theory, tuning systems, and rational thought, as well as being the father of Astronomer Galileo Galilei.
