Auditory and Visual Sensations by Yoichi Ando

By Yoichi Ando

Professor Yoichi Ando, acoustic architectural dressmaker of the Kirishima foreign live performance corridor in Japan, offers a finished rational-scientific method of designing functionality areas. His idea relies on systematic psychoacoustical observations of spatial listening to and listener personal tastes, whose neuronal correlates are saw within the neurophysiology of the human mind. A correlation-based version of neuronal sign processing within the relevant auditory procedure is proposed during which temporal sensations (pitch, timbre, loudness, period) are represented by way of an inner autocorrelation illustration, and spatial sensations (sound position, measurement, diffuseness concerning envelopment) are represented via an inner interaural crosscorrelation functionality. jointly those inner significant auditory representations account for the elemental auditory characteristics which are suitable for hearing song and speech in indoor functionality areas. saw mental and neurophysiological commonalities among auditory and visible sensations and choice styles are offered and mentioned. This publication hence spans the disciplines of physics, acoustics, psychology, neurophysiology, and track creation, thereby mixing technology, engineering, and art.

5) A linear scale value for subjective preference can be derived using the law of comparative judgment or paired-comparisons tests (Thurstone, 1927; Mosteller, 1951; Gullikson, 1956; Torgerson, 1958) for both groups of subjects as well as for individuals (Ando, 1998). 3. 6) where Si , i = 1, 2, 3, 4 is the scale value obtained relative to each objective factor. 6) represents a four-dimensional continuum. The dependence of the scale values on each objective factor is shown graphically in Fig. 5.

2) As shown in Fig. 5, is Wφ(0) , according to the fact that φ(τ) is en even function. (3) Fine structure, including peaks and delays: For instance, τ1 and φ1 are the delay time and the amplitude of the first peak of the ACF, τn and φn being the delay time and the amplitude of the n-th peak. Usually, there are certain correlations between τ1 and τn +1 and between φ1 and φn+1 , so that significant factors are τ1 and φ1 . (4) The effective duration of the envelope of the normalized ACF, τe , which is defined by the tenth-percentile delay and which represents a repetitive feature or reverberation containing the sound source itself (Fig.
