How does running a bow across some strings translate to music in the ears? Why does a violin sound more high pitched than a cello?

Questions like these --- and many others --- will be answered at the BYU Department of Physics and Astronomy's Sounds to Astound demonstrations this month. The entire family can come be stunned by science at these free shows on Friday, September 25 at 7 p.m., Saturday, September 26 at 2 p.m., or Monday, September 28 at 6 p.m.

BYU acoustics students will use science to explain sound in what has become a popular annual tradition.

This year the focus will be on the sounds of music with interactive demonstrations that will entertain and educate both kids and adults. Presenters will teach how music is first produced by instruments and then processed by human ears.

Visit sounds.byu.edu to reserve seats and find more information. Audience members should arrive five to 10 minutes early and are invited to tour BYU's unique anechoic chamber before or after Sounds to Astound. All shows take place in room C-215 of the Eyring Science Center on the BYU campus.
