Acoustic Model

Structure, Musical [Str]  >  Formalism  ]

An Acoustic Model is a representation of a sound based on the understanding of the behaviour of sound in the discipline of acoustics (and more recently psychacoustics). This representation may be visual, or computer-based, and can be used for research (for example, in discovereing salient aspects of speech signals) or composition.

In a much looser sense it is a perceptually based investigation into a sound’s characteristics and behaviour could also involve an acoustic model (which may even subsequently appear as material in an electroacoustic composition).
