Food & Paper: Where is the beat in that note? (Danielsen & Nymoen)
Anne Danielsen and Kristian Nymoen will present one of their latest papers.
When coordinating physical actions with sounds, we synchronise our actions with the perceptual center (P-center) of the sound, understood as the specific moment at which the sound is perceived to occur. In this Food & Paper talk we will report from a series of experiments where we probe the influence of Attack (rise time), Duration, and Frequency (center frequency) on the perceived P-center location and P-center variability of musical and quasi-musical sounds.
The experiments were conducted as part of the project TIME: Timing and Sound in Musical Microrhythm.
