Optimized geometric and electronic wavefront shaping with line source arrays for large-scale sound reinforcement

Straube, Florian (2019)

Line Source Arrays (LSAs) are used for large-scale sound reinforcement aiming at the synthesis of homogeneous wavefronts for the whole audio bandwidth. The deployed loudspeaker cabinets are rigged with different tilt angles and/or are electronically controlled in order to provide the intended coverage of the audience zones and to avoid radiation towards reflective ceilings, sidewalls or residen...

Keine Zeit für den C-Test?

Zimmermann, Kerstin (2019)

Der C-Test gilt als ein objektives, reliables und valides Instrument zum Erheben allgemeiner Sprachkompetenz. Zahlreiche Studien belegen den Zusammenhang des C-Tests mit verschiedenen sprachlichen Teilfertigkeiten: Leseverstehen, Hörverstehen, Sprechen, Schreiben, Wortschatz, Grammatik. Im Gegensatz dazu ist der S-C-Test – eine stark beschleunigte Variante des Testformats – noch kaum erforscht....

BRAS - Benchmark for Room Acoustical Simulation

Aspöck, Lukas ; Brinkmann, Fabian ; Ackermann, David ; Weinzierl, Stefan ; Vorländer, Michael (2019-05-15)

The Benchmark for Room Acoustical Simulation (BRAS) contains eleven acoustical scenes that are intended for the evaluation of room acoustical simulation software. This comprises simple scenes that isolate certain acoustic phenomena, as well as complex environments of different shape and size. Each scene consists of a scene description giving the room geometry, and the positions of the acoustic ...

Theoretical Models and Specific Communication Situations in Projects

Pelikan, Kristina ; Roelcke, Thorsten (2017)

In recent years, numerous proposals have been made with the aim of establishing a systematic hierarchy of relationships for languages for special purposes (LSP), and different approaches have been classified in terms of vertical and horizontal models. Recently, however LSP research has moved more and more towards Applied Linguistics and a segregation has emerged between studies focusing on syst...

Projektsprachengliederung – systematische Analyse eines fachkommunikativen Einzelfalles

Pelikan, Kristina (2016)

Due to the increased consideration of concrete case studies, LSP research moved more and more towards Applied Linguistics during the last years. Although necessity and relevance of these studies are beyond dispute, this development of LSP research does not implicate only advantages. Systematic approaches are neglected more and more or even replaced by studies done intuitively without a groundin...

Assessment of speech perception based on binaural room impulse responses

Kokabi, Omid ; Brinkmann, Fabian ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2018-03-14)

This document is supplement to "Assessment of speech perception based on binaural room impulse responses", a master thesis realized at the audio communication group at Technische Universität Berlin. In this thesis, the prediction accuracy with a binaural intelligibility model with an extension to model the influence of reverberation was tested for four different virtual rooms. Therefore, speech...

Visualizing Music Psychology: A Bibliometric Analysis of Psychology of Music, Music Perception, and Musicae Scientiae from 1973 to 2017

Anglada-Tort, Manuel ; Sanfilippo, Katie Rose M. (2019-01-25)

Music psychology has grown drastically since being established in the middle of the 19th century. However, until now, no large-scale computational bibliometric analysis of the scientific literature in music psychology has been carried out. This study aims to analyze all published literature from the journals Psychology of Music, Music Perception, and Musicae Scientiae. The retrieved literature ...

Commentary on Canonne (2018): Listening to Improvisation

Anglada-Tort, Manuel (2018)

The target study explores whether evaluations of the same piece of music differ under two distinct listening conditions: listening to a piece described either as an improvisation or as a preexisting composition. Participants (N = 16) in the two conditions listened to the same musical piece and provided verbal evaluative judgements. The author used a grounded theory approach to analyze listeners...

Agreement on a New Single License Model for In-Store Audio Systems for European Collecting Societies

Reguera, Lucía ; Muñoz, Bruno ; Pozo, Nerea ; Roozendaal, Dave (2019-01-02)

The goal of this document is to propose a novel, convenient and adequate in-store license model for both users and CMOs. To this end we have carried out a case study integrating three different users, from a CMO perspective: A Music Provider, and two end users (a 100 sq m clothing store and bar). The goal is to demonstrate, in a practical way, the procedures these users would need to follow, i...
