Subject: Acoustics


I've about finished reading A. Benade's "Fundamentals of Musical Acoustics", and am hungry for more. Does anyone know of a good journal or periodical that deals with musical acoustics on a regular basis? I don't mind if it gets more technical (e.g., more mathematical) than FMA (graduate degree in physical organic chemistry ought to be good for something...).
