Recording Techniques and Perception of Environment

Document Thumbnail

In many forms of music (classical, traditional, some jazz, and some folk) one ideal of recording is the creation of a sense of being there in the original performance space. This illusion is primarily impacted by the listening environment and by microphone technique. This paper is an investigation into published literature to find research which has taken the entire system, from recording space to listening space, as its subject. It also explores the inter-relation between listening environment and microphone technique, and identifies some of the factors of acoustics and perception which make various common recording techniques successful.
