Evaluating the Auralization of Performance Spaces and Its Effect on Singing Performance

Musicians alter their performance according to the acoustic environment in which they perform, but as yet a thorough parametric investigation of the effect of room acoustics on musical performance has not been achieved. A sufficiently “realistic” synthesized Room Impulse Response (RIR) will facilitate such a study, since this will allow the investigator greater control and knowledge of the room acoustic parameters involved. This paper reports the results of an experiment to evaluate a virtual acoustic space through the performance, interview and audio analysis of a solo singer. Simulations of the same performance space using synthesized and measured RIRs are compared. In general, singers who took part in the trial could distinguish between the two simulations and rated the measured RIR simulation more highly in terms of warmth and reverberance.
