On the Impact of Audio Characteristics to the Quality of Musicians' Experience in Network Music Performance

Document Thumbnail

Audio delay is a crucial factor in the Quality of Musicians' Experience (QoME) in Network Music Performance. Previous studies have explored the tolerance of musicians to delay and its dependence on the timbre of the instruments used and tempo of the performance. Although their findings are intriguing, the small size of these studies makes the extraction of concrete conclusions quite hard. In order to shed more light on these issues, we undertook a larger-scale Network Music Performance study with real musicians, assessing a wide range of subjective QoME variables against delay, and correlated these results with the audio characteristics of the instruments and performance. Because of the large number of participants, our findings validate and extend previous studies with a wider array of QoME variables and audio characteristics.
