Flute Meets Machine is an exploration of the world of music for flute and computer. Electroacoustic Music is music composed for a live performer plus electronic sounds: this exciting genre includes the limitless sound possibilities that the computer provides with the humanness of a live performer. By its nature, the music composed in this genre is cutting edge, daring, and other-worldly. The ability to create new sounds on the computer is incomparable to any other instrument known - a computer can mimic the sounds of a baby crying or a thunderstorm or machinery, and can also create sounds that have never been heard before. It can transform these sounds imperceptibly or suddenly, creating a listening experience found in no other form of music. The presence of a live musician, in this case a flutist, connects the computer world to the more familiar world of a live human performer. The contrasts, and the similarities, between the two are vivid, fascinating and surprising, and never dull or unapproachable. Flute Meets Machine explores the history, the theory, and the performance of the music written for flute and computer-generated sounds.
This research investigates the errors of pronunciation made by students from two primary schools in Assarih, Jordan. It attempts to find out which English sound is more difficult to produce [consonant or vowel], to determine which is more difficult for students to produce-sounds in the initial, medial or in the final position and to look into any sex-related differences in pronunciation between girls and boys. Findings were achieved through three main tests carried out in the middle of January in the academic year (2008/2009). The number of students who participated in each test was 20 in which half of them were boys. They were selected randomly from the sixth grade (12 years old). The first test (Test A) concentrated on vowel and diphthong pronunciation which required students to pronounce a list of 21 words containing vowel between two consonants. For analysing purposes, all the tests were recorded. Sixty percent of the students pronounced the vowels correctly, while 50% pronounced diphthong correctly. The second test (Test B) intended to find out which is the more difficult consonant sounds to be produced by the students in three positions (i.e., initial, medial and final).
