Sound Event

Disciplines of Study [DoS]  >  Acoustic Communication  >  Soundscape Studies  ]

The sound event, like the sound object, is defined by the human ear as the smallest self-contained particle of a soundscape. It differs from the sound object in that the latter is an abstract acoustical object for study, while the sound event is a symbolic, semantic or structural object for study, and is therefore a nonabstractable point of reference, related to a whole of greater magnitude than itself.
