Effects of Psychoacoustical Factors on the Perception of Musical Signals in the Context of Environmental Soundscape

Document Thumbnail

Increasing attention is paid to the benefits of music or music-like signals in soundscape and the soundscape design projects. The perception and awareness of musical signals in the context of environmental soundscape has been suggested with a number of psychoacoustical factors involved. In this paper sound pressure level, noisiness, listeners’ hearing training background, and interaction of the sound sources have been found to influence the perception of consonance, extraction, and awareness of the musical signals in the context of environmental soundscape. This paper also gives a brief discussion on the theoretic definition of music perception and consonance or pleasance.
