nt. He has been experimenting with piano wire made of carbon fiber in an effort to find wires of even greater strength but with a narrow diameter. Presentation 3aMU6, "Evolution of music wire and its impact on the development of the piano," is in the morning session on Wednesday, May 25 in the Aspen room.

The Sounds of San Francisco

A popular tourist thing to do is to take city tours. Some tours show off a city's architecture, or its history, or literary sites. Dennis A. Paoletti had devised an acoustic tour of San Francisco, one that concentrates on sounds. During a meeting of architects, he led a tour around town that concentrated on experiencing famous San Francisco sounds, such as cable cars, fog horns, electrified street cars, and even the famous U.S. Air Force precision flying team, the Blue Angels, streaking along the San Francisco Bay. The tour covered some of the major parts of the city that a tourist would normally see, but also visited some buildings for which Paoletti had acted as an acoustic consultant. Neutralizing unwanted noise, measuring the effectiveness of double-hung windows, and listening for the absorbent or reflective acoustic qualities of various building materials were some of the things discussed along the way. Other topics on the tour included: potential hearing damage caused by industrial and entertainment noise and by personal listening devices, the hum of hybrid vehicles and personal transport vehicles, concert hall design, restaurant noise, and sound masking systems in open plan offices. Presentation 4pAAa1, "Soundscape walking tour," is in the first afternoon session on Thursday, May 26 in Grand Ballroom B. Abstract: http://asa.aip.org/web2/asa
