Final project for CPSC 431: Sound Synthesis in Spring 2016 with Professor Donya Quick.

This project focuses on recreating the bells of Harkness tower by additive synthesis with the main focus on the decay portion of the sound. Recordings of individual bells of Harkness were made (available in recorded_harkness) and analyzed using SPEAR. The analysis was then used to generate sound in Haskell, utilizing the Euterpea library, by additive synthesis.

Exported sound files are available here with subfolders for sound with both attack and decay, attack and decay reversed, and just decay.

Finally, the sounds were imported into Logic Pro to create an instrument and perform pieces.
