Encouraging Students Towards Meaningful Subjective Comparisons

Document Thumbnail

As we emphasize the importance of our students “using their ears” to make important decisions in their creative processes, we call upon them to listen subjectively to qualities of equipment, instruments, performances, media types, algorithms, and production possibilities. Preparing situations where they can compare these items critically and earnestly can be challenging. Neglect to account for certain variables can have significant implications on what they hear and in turn their subjective perceptions. By creating carefully controlled experiments and experiences in our classrooms and studios, hopefully we can model a rigorous research approach that they will take with them whenever they are recording, while also promoting critical listening and careful decision making throughout an audio/recording curriculum.
