Sound Levels and Spectra of Rock Music

Document Thumbnail

The results of a survey of the sound levels encountered by attendees of rock music entertainment are presented. Recordings were made at several discotheques, nightclubs and band parties. These recordings were later analyzed for overall sound level, octave band level and peak to average level ratios. Perceived Noise Level, Composite Damage Risk, A, B, C and D weighted levels were calculated from the octave band levels using a special FORTRAN program. Comparisons are made of the variation in levels over an evening, from evening to evening and from location to location.
