|The Theme You Picked: Acoustics|
The theme this month is Acoustics and it comes from an idea from neuromodulator. This competition is an opportunity to do projects around sound and can involve projects that involve infrasound, audible sound, ultrasound, amplifiers, piezoelectric material, spectrum analyzers, and more! Acoustics (from the Greek word akoustos which means "heard") is the science of how sound is produced, transmitted, controlled, and the effects of sound. Acoustics play a huge role in music, especially when it comes to musical scales and instruments. Concert halls and auditoriums take into account the relationship between space and the listener with a good acoustic design taking into account issues such as reverberation time; sound absorption of finished material; echoes; acoustic shadows; sound intimacy, texture, and blend; as well as external noise. Architectural modifications can be made to improve sound such as adding orchestral shells, canopies, and undulating or angled ceilings and walls.
Your project can be anything involving sound or using a transducer for converting one form of energy into another. In an electroacoustic context, a transducer converts sound energy into electrical energy (or vice versa). Your project can involve electroacoustic transducers that convert a sound wave to some form of electric signal such as loudspeakers, microphones, particle velocity sensors, hydrophones and sonar projectors. The most widely used transduction principles are electromagnetism, electrostatics and piezoelectricity.

Your Project, Your Ideas!
Every month you'll have a new poll where you'll get to decide an upcoming project competition, based on your interests, that will take place a couple of months in advance. Themes are broad in scope so that everyone can participate regardless of skill set.

Step 2: Post in the comments section below to begin a discussion on your idea. Videos, pictures and text are all welcomed forms of submission.
Step 3: Submit a blog post of your progress on your project by the end of the month. You are free to submit as many blog entries as you like until the beginning of the next theme.
Be sure to include video proof of your project!
Visit: Acoustics or tag your project blog AcousticsCH
You have until March 16th End of Day to submit your completed project!
A jury consisting of your peers will judge project submissions!
