Developing consensus language for describing differences in auditory imagery associated with four multichannel microphone techniques

Sungyoung Kim, William L. Martens

Abstract


A consensus language is developed for describing differences in auditory imagery associated with four multichannel microphone techniques used to record a selection of solo piano performances. A musical program material is selected to be used in evaluating the results of using the microphone techniques to be evaluated. Eight masters students from the Sound Recording program of McGill University participated in the listening experiments. The eight individuals participating in longitudinal attribute rating study completed a verbal elicitation task using a triadic comparison method. The adjectives used to describe differences between solo piano performances captured using four different multichannel microphone techniques are explored. The dissimilarity measure of auditory imagery is found to be the sum of squared deviations of the individual dataset from the centroid response dataset.
