Spectral Fusion

Disciplines of Study [DoS]  >  Psychoacoustics  ]

The notion of timbre implies fusion. It considers the quality of sound of a number of integrated components into a single sonic entity and attributed to a single real or imagined source. Spectral fusion is a key to the identification of timbral identity. In his writings Denis Smalley prefers the term integration. (Source - Jean-Claude Risset (1991).
