The Effect of Reverberation on Music Performance

Document Thumbnail

The structure of playing musical instruments consists of 3 basic steps: performing on the instrument to make musical sounds, recognizing spatial information and music in the space through listening to the sounds themselves, and finally returning the information to the performance to adapt their musical experience and consciousness. These steps go on as a loop during the performance of musical instruments, and it is widely known that reverberation effects recognition of the space, i.e. the second step. Adjusting the whole acoustic environment inside the room with sampling reverberation should help musicians to play just as they want to. In this paper, the relation between multiple parameters of reverberation and the features of solo violin performance is investigated.
