Abstract

The study of timbre as a musical attribute has received much more attention in the recent decades. However, its multidimensional nature is still not fully understood. This paper illustrates that timbral manipulation commonly takes place in the real world, and hence, in order to understand music in an ecological sense, one must strive to understand timbre.
