In our last post, we explored how Fourier transforms can be used in Mathematica to make a frequency filter for audio files. That post was primarily concerned with implementing the appropriate transforms (and, of course, paying homage to the amazing talent of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis).
The Heist by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis is a masterpiece. It is clearly the best album of 2012, and I suspect it will go down alongside classics like Illmatic, The Chronic, The Marshall Mathers LP, and The College Dropout.
You’ve probably already experienced the agony that accompanies an infection of Carly Rae Jepsen’s inane earworm “Call Me Maybe”. You’ve probably also been subjected to the current number one song in America, Flo Rida’s “Whistle”, a ditty whose only creative merit is its ability to evade censorship despite its explicit subject material.
