The use of microphone level balance in blending the timbre of horn and bassoon players
(Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, 2015-10)
A common musical aim of orchestration is to achieve a blended timbre for certain instrument combinations. Its success has been shown to also depend on the timbral coordination between musicians during performance, which ...
The role of spectral-envelope characteristics in perceptual blending of wind-instrument sounds
Certain combinations of musical instruments lead to perceptually more blended timbres than others. Orchestration commonly seeks these combinations and can benefit from generalized acoustical descriptions of perceptually ...
Timbre blending of wind instruments: acoustics and perception
The acoustical and perceptual factors involved in timbre blending between orchestral wind instruments are investi- gated based on a pitch-invariant acoustical description of wind instruments. This description involves the ...
Measuring the interaction between bassoon and horn players in achieving timbre blend
Our study investigates the interactive relationship between bassoon and horn players in achieving timbre blend during musical performance. The interaction is studied in a behavioral experiment, measuring the timbral ...
Predicting blend between orchestral timbres using generalized spectral-envelope descriptions
Composers rely on implicit knowledge of instrument timbres to achieve certain effects in orchestration. In the context of perceptual blending between orchestral timbres, holistic acoustical descriptions of instrument-specific ...
