Applying scientific methods to study the acoustic response of a musical instrument is what Marco Antonio Pérez has been doing with the guitar for a long time.
He is an engineer doctor, but also a guitarist. His research area focuses on experimental characterization and numerical modeling of the dynamic behavior of advanced materials and structures, and he is applying all this knowledge to the study of the guitar.
At the lecture he gave in Badalona during the Guitar Conference 2017, he presented us two of the research projects that he is carrying out.
Thanks to this slightly technical but very entertaining lecture, we were able to see first-hand how he does his work and we became familiar with the tools, methods and techniques that he uses for.
