Barbershop blend; Why I sound different to you | Andrea Day

Posted on

Andrea Day sings with the Cheshire Chord Company in Warrington in the UK, and with a quartet called MIX. She does a great job in explaining basic physics of sound.

Today’s lesson – Why do I sound different to you?A flute sounds different to a violin, even when they are playing the same note. And, you can recognise someones voice on the end of the phone out of all your friends with them just saying the word,  “Hello”.But why? and how does this even relate to Barbershop?Every sound has a unique fingerprint and our ears are clever enough to be able to decipher this and differentiate between them. To look at what some of these fingerprints look like, we need to cover off some basics.Sound is a wave of air at different pressures and is called a “waveform”.
