Seminar at Speech, Music and Hearing:

Sound source perception in impact sounds

Bruno Giordano, Department of General Psychology, University of Padova, Italy


Our auditory environment is populated of sound sources: the goal of perception is to extract their properties on the basis of the acoustical signal reaching our ears. Which are the source properties relevant to the listener? Upon which acoustical features is source perception based? These issues have been investigated focusing on impact sounds, using different experimental tasks: material identification, hardness scaling, and dissimilarity rating. Despite differences in the tasks, and in the investigated sound sets, strong regularities emerged, highlighting a limited number of salient source properties, and acoustical features.
