MUF, Toy piano & fixed media

MUF, for Toy piano & fixed media

(Published by Brotons & Mercadal)

MUF es el acrónimo de frecuencia máxima utilizable (Maximum usable frequency) La frecuencia máxima utilizable describe la máxima frecuencia que puede utilizarse para establecer una comunicación entre dos puntos, utilizando la propagación por reflexión ionosférica. Bajo esta idea se describen los sonidos de la pieza, que se construye siempre a partir de sonidos que van de un punto a otro. Puede ser interpretada con visuales realizadas por Damià Jordà para la misma. La pieza combina en movimiento del sonido y los pulsos del mismo, dando siempre la impresión de la curvatura de la ionosfera, y el reflejo de las frecuencias sonoras y la carga eléctrica que en este lugar se produce debido a los iones.

English

MUF is the acronym of Maximum usable frequency. In radio transmission maximum usable frequency (MUF) is the highest radio frequency that can be used for transmission between two points via reflection from the ionosphere (skywave or “skip” propagation) at a specified time, independent of transmitter power. Under this idea the sounds of the piece are described, which is always constructed from sounds that go from one point to another. It can be interpreted with visuals made by Damià Jordà for it. The piece combines moving sound and pulses, always giving the impression of the curvature of the ionosphere, and the reflection of sound frequencies and the electrical charge that occurs in this place due to the ions.
