You might enjoy my latest column for General Music Today, “Learning from looking at sound: Using multimedia spectrograms to explore world music.” The column details the use of multimedia spectrogram displays for visualizing and understanding music.
Here’s the video that accompanies the column:[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WYw3qoTdU4]
If you don’t know how to view the spectrum in Audacity, check out this short video.
Also, for a related presentation of mine from last year, contextualized by Nick Jaworski, see this great post on his blog, “Seeing is Hearing: Visualizations, Music Education, and You.”
