Source Recognition

Musicology of Electroacoustic Music [MEM]  >  Listening Experience  ]

Source Recognition refers to the ability of a listener to ascribe a real or imaginary physical origin or provenance to a sound. This is likely to be a great significance in Acousmatic listening situations, to the extent that it may become an aspect of the musical discourse. The term is closely allied to the concept of Timbre.
