When you perform Fourier analysis, you assume that the signal is composed of sine waves of different frequencies.
In Squier and Crehore's " Synchronograph " system " sine waves of current, instead of sharp " makes and breaks," or sharp reversals, are employed for transmitting signals, the waves being produced by an alternating-current dynamo, and regulated by means of a perforated paper ribbon, as in the Wheatstone automatic system.
The Spectrum Any sound can be constructed by adding up enough sine waves of differing intensity levels, frequencies and starting times.
Stockhausen used close analysis of sound to compose with sine waves to create timbres.Advertisement
