Time for Slow Listening

Document Thumbnail

Conscious perception is influenced by long-term experience and learning, to an extent that it might be more accurately understood and studied as primarily a reach-out phenomenon, at least in adults. Considering human hearing, time is a deciding factor on several scales, and the sensory information flow rate, otherwise termed the perceptual bandwidth, is modest. We introduce the term “slow listening” and discuss how new findings from other fields of science should be taken into account in pro audio, for instance when conducting subjective tests, and when preserving content for future generations to enjoy.
