Junk Food or Haute Cuisine to the Ear? – Investigating the Relationship Between Room Acoustics, Soundscape, Non-Acoustical Factors, and the Perceived Quality of Restaurants

Steffens, Jochen ; Wilczek, Tobias ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2021-05-13)

Sound and music are well-studied aspects of the quality of experience in restaurants; the role of the room acoustical conditions, their influence on the visitors’ soundscape evaluation and their impact on the overall customer satisfaction in restaurants, however, has received less scientific attention. The present field study therefore investigated whether sound pressure level, reverberation ti...

A system for expressive spectro-spatial sound synthesis

Coler, Henrik von (2021)

The GLOOO system is a holistic digital musical instrument for spatial sound synthesis, considering a control device, a real time synthesis algorithm with a related modeling procedure and the integration of sound reproduction systems. Statistical Spectral Modeling is introduced as a novel method for transferring a sample library of musical instrument sounds into a data model for the application ...

On the threshold of beauty

Kees, Tazelaar (2013-11)

From the outset, Dutch electronic music has found itself in between the two principal European trends in this field, namely the French musique concrète introduced at the French Radio in 1948, and the German elektronische Musik which emerged from 1951 onwards at the Cologne broadcast station. Although electronic music had incidentally been made in Dutch radio studios since 1952, this was not yet...

‘The time where the British took the lead is over’: ethical aspects of writing in complex research partnerships

Pelikan, Kristina ; Jeffery, Roger ; Roelcke, Thorsten (2020-05-16)

Writing reflects some of the different characteristics of the language being used and of the people who are communicating. The present paper focusses on the internal written communication in international and inter-disciplinary research projects. Using a case study of an international public health research project, it argues that the authorship and the languages used in internal project commun...

A Multi-channel Anechoic Orchestra Recording of Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 op. 93: Audio Recordings and Accompanying Data

Böhm, Christoph ; Ackermann, David ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2018)

This data set contains an excerpt of the anechoic recording of the Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93 by Ludwig van Beethoven, performed by the "Orchester Wiener Akademie" conducted by Martin Haselböck. It was recorded in the anechoic chamber of the TU Berlin.

BRAS - Benchmark for Room Acoustical Simulation

Aspöck, Lukas ; Brinkmann, Fabian ; Ackermann, David ; Weinzierl, Stefan ; Vorländer, Michael (2020-10-06)

The Benchmark for Room Acoustical Simulation (BRAS) contains seven acoustical reference scenes that are intended for the evaluation of room acoustical simulation software. The reference scenes isolate acoustic phenomena such as reflection, scattering, and diffraction. Four complex scenes of different shape and size are contained in the appendix. Due to increased measurement uncertainties, these...

A Ground Truth on Room Acoustical Analysis and Perception (GRAP)

Ackermann, David ; Ilse, Maximilan ; Grigoriev, Dmitry ; Lepa, Steffen ; Pelzer, Sönke ; Vorländer, Michael ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2018-05)

A database of 35 virtual room models was created that can serve as a ground truth for the future development of room acoustical parameters beyond ISO 3382-1. Some of the room models are based on existing performance venues, however without yielding a perfect match of measured and simulated acoustical parameters. Others are artificial designs which were made to systematically cover a wide variet...

Popular Music as Entertainment Communication: How Perceived Semantic Expression Explains Liking of Previously Unknown Music

Lepa, Steffen ; Steffens, Jochen ; Herzog, Martin ; Egermann, Hauke (2020-08-13)

Our contribution addresses popular music as essential part of media entertainment offerings. Prior works explained liking for specific music titles in ‘push scenarios’ (radio programs, music recommendation, curated playlists) by either drawing on personal genre preferences, or on findings about ‘cognitive side effects’ leading to a preference drift towards familiar and society-wide popular trac...

Measuring Stereotypes in Music: A Commentary on Susino and Schubert (2019)

Anglada-Tort, Manuel (2019)

In this commentary, I first discuss the strengths of the target paper and provide suggestions for future research. I proceed to point out an important limitation of the target study as well as contribute considerations relevant to measuring stereotypes in music. Finally, I present a novel theoretical account to explain music stereotyping, namely, the representativeness heuristic (Tversky & Kahn...

The FABIAN head-related transfer function data base

Brinkmann, Fabian ; Lindau, Alexander ; Weinzierl, Stefan ; Geissler, Gunnar ; van de Par, Steven ; Müller-Trapet, Markus ; Opdam, Rob ; Vorländer, Michael (2017-02-09)

This data base includes head-related transfer functions (HRTFs), headphone transfer functions (HpTFs), and 3D-meshes of the FABIAN head and torso simulator. More detailed information is provided in the documentation within the data base.

Eine qualitative Untersuchung der Generalisierungsverhaltens von CNNs zur Instrumentenerkennung

Gebhardt, Roman B. ; Lykartsis, Athanasios ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2020)

Künstliche neuronale Netze (ANNs) haben sich im Bereich des maschinellen Lernens für Audiodaten als erfolgreichstes Werkzeug mit hoher Klassifikationsrate etabliert [1]. Ein bedeutender Nachteil besteht aus wissenschaftlicher Sicht jedoch in der schweren Interpretierbarkeit des von ANNs tatsächlich gelernten Inhalts [2, 3]. Um dieses Problem anzugehen untersuchen wir in dieser Arbeit den Lern- ...
