Abstract

The purpose of this thesis is to examine why different instruments sound different even when playing the same note. This is done through the use of the Fourier transform on sample recordings of different instruments. The thesis will include a bases for understanding waves and how the Fourier transform is used, as well as some basic music theory, before examining the differences in the instruments.
