TheCorrelation between Music and Chemical Engineerin
Musicand chemical engineering are two distinct disciplines that on thesurface do not have many aspects that bring them together. Inchemical engineering the end product is meant to attain a specificgoal or solve a given problem in the society, while in music thefinal product is music, which in real sense, may not be meant tofulfill any mission but to provide entertainment or just communicatethe thoughts of the composer (Sakai 1). Nonetheless, chemicalengineers and musicians must at least have an idea, search for waysto connect the idea with real life, and convert the idea into aproduct so that it is in a form that can be consumed by other peoplefor various purposes. In the process of generating the end product,chemical engineers require scientific knowledge and adequate researchto be in a position to weave physical sciences to gather solutions toa given challenge in the society. Music requires immense creativityand ability to blend various musical instruments and sounds to createa masterpiece that will be appealing to the targeted group (Sakai 1).In the 21st century, technology has revolutionized the way thatprocesses are carried out and the manner in which products arecreated, musicians, and chemical engineers have benefitedsignificantly from such developments. This paper will discuss theconnection that exists between music and chemical engineering.
ChemicalEngineering and Music
Thecorrelation between chemical engineering and music relates theconcept of harmonics that determines the manner in knowledge isapplied to attain desired results – chemical engineers make decisionto erect building at a given place and the way in which music artistscompose music. In this work, the concept of harmony algorithms willbe applied to exemplify the link between chemical engineering andmusic. In the process of composing music different membranes,vibrations of strings and vocal chords are mixed artistically toproduce systematic notes that produce a given tune when combined(Sakai 1).
Whenthe tune is mixed with different rhythmic sounds from numerousinstruments, they create different sounds that become music. Incontrast, chemical engineers must be alert and conscious of thediverse vibrations that come about naturally due to forces from windsand tectonic shift when crafting their products. The differentvibrations and harmonics salient in their working environment enableschemical engineers to ascertain their utilizable potential (Sakai 1).
Theterm utilizable potential in this paper is used to denote theusability of a given product by living things without any compromiseto the health and welfare (Sakai 1). For chemical engineersestablishing the utilizable potential is paramount because if itignored products that are created could be harmful to the health. Inthis light chemical engineers must account for vibrations andharmonics to establish utilizable potential. This means that productsgenerated such as drinks and foods are produced through safe andacceptable processes so that they do not cause harm. Similarharmonics are employed by music artists to create and generatepleasant tunes from an array of musical instruments. In music,harmonics are important in crafting a pleasant music while inchemical engineering it is vital is creating safe products for livingthings. Therefore, the application of harmonic algorithm in thecomposition of music is an ideal principle that can be used exemplifythe link between chemical engineering and music. To be succinct, amusic artist must be resourceful and cautious I picking the aptwords, the tune, rhythm and a blend of various instruments to producemusic that is appeals and suits the targeted demographic segment(Sakai 1).
Connectionbetween Music and Chemical Engineering
Inmusic, harmony emanates from the way that an artist bends varioussounds from different musical instruments playing concurrently.Hence, harmony is the premise of establishing the way that soundswaves generated interaction to create rhythm. If the interfacebetween different sound waves is exemplary, the resultant tune andmusic is considered enjoyable, and in the same way if the interactionis not perfect, the music generated is not pleasing. The main dutyand role of a music composer is to make sure that the music generatedfrom different sets of sounds is pleasing to approaching each setwith a desire for perfection (Sakai 1). Under normal circumstance,the human ear is able to perceive pleasant and unpleasant soundwaves. The hunt for a perfect blend is achieved through optimizationequation and application of mathematical principles. For instance, ina situation where a chemical engineers seeks to generate agenetically modified product, they are obligated to see to it thatthe process and methods applied, plus the commodity created are nearperfection. The term near perfection is chemical engineering isemployed o denote the adherence of recommended principles formulatedto make physical sciences applicable in real life so that the productgenerated does not cause harm or health complications to users (Sakai1).
Professionalin both disciplines use established metaheuristics that mimic atechnique that incessantly improves in quality to attain the aspiredstate, that is, melodious set of reverberations for music composersand safe and life-saving commodities for chemical engineers (Sakai1). For example, the harmony based algorithm use a musical techniqueor process, which seek for an ideal state of harmony between themusical instruments, the beat, the lyric of the song as well as themood (Sakai 1). When performing, music artists generate melodioussounds which are meant to attain a perfect state of harmony. Theperfection that music composers seek to attain is also the keyfeature that inspires chemical engineers to set artistic and acoustictargets of projects. The value that is attached to a given project isthe main ingredient that guides chemical engineers in optimizing theobjective equation and to satisfy a particular constraint in theproblem (Sakai 1). Therefore it is evident that the harmony algorithmthat engineers use to optimize a given objective functions, improvesfrom one stage of the manufacturing process to the other, just as theharmony in music is improved from one rehearsal to another. The waythat music artists fine-tune their creations is suffused in differentmathematical problems that chemical engineers employ to compute theviability of processes and products in diverse physical and artisticconditions.
Forinstance, in formulating the process to follow to generate a newproduct, chemical engineers employ the music based algorithm toadvance the problematical applications through simple preset simplesteps. Music based algorithm also assist chemical engineers togenerate solutions to problems relating genetic engineering, foodproduction other processes in the manufacturing.
Onthe surface it appears as if there is no connection between music andchemical engineering their outcomes have no link and while music isa social science chemical engineering is a physical science.Nonetheless, many professionals in music and chemical engineeringwould agree that conceptual harmony is one of the aspects that cutsacross the board. The two disciplines are connected by the fact thatthey seek to find harmony in the end product (Sakai 1). The consumersand users of the products generated by music artists and chemicalengineers are constantly demanding for new, better and improvedproducts. Consequently, for an artist in the music industry tosucceed, they must continuously search for better ways of craftingpleasing music. In the same way, a chemical engineer mustcontinuously seek to generate new products that help people tounravel various conundrums such as disease. The final product formusic producers and composers is great music that would be appealingto everyone or to the targeted demographic segment for chemicalengineers the goal is to create a viable product that would berecommended by various stakeholders as safe and helpful for publicconsumption (Sakai 1).
Thispaper has shown that the connection between chemical engineering andmusic relates to the harmony based approach that professionals inboth fields employ and pursue to generate their products.Professionals in chemical engineering just like a music producers orcomposers are not known for the many things that they do but for theproducts that they generate. In both fields, originality andcreativity are key elements because it enables them to attain thedemands of the society. It is evident that both employ a similarconceptual approach. Both seek to produce a refined product that willappeal and help people in various domains, and as such the methodicalprocesses employed are mastered to perfection.
