Influence of the Listening Room in the Perception of a Musical Work

Document Thumbnail

The listening of the same musical composition generates a unique perception for every listener but, simultaneously, the specific acoustic conditions of the chosen room have a decisive influence on the perception. In order to evaluate such differences depending on the listening room, a musical work for choir has been composed and recorded with a HATS in an anechoic room, in a reverberant room and in a normal room. With those records, surveys to professional musicians and non-expert listeners has been carried out, once they have previously heard the recording with headphones, and finally, the answers obtained have been evaluated in order to determine the influence of the listening room in the perception of the musical work.
