Acoustic Space

Disciplines of Study [DoS]  >  Acoustics  ]

The perceived area encompassed by a soundscape, either an actual environment, or an imagined one such as produced with a tape recording and several loudspeakers. Every sound brings with it information about the space in which it occurs (for environmental sound) or is thought to occur (as with synthesised sound). With environmental sound, loudness and the quality of reverberation mainly determine the kind of space that is perceived, enclosed or open, large or small. The sense of speeding motion is usually perceived by the presence of a Doppler Effect. (Reduction of Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition.
