Based on the 1995 Music and Concert Hall Acoustics conference, this volume examines the fundamental relationship between the music, the concert hall and the listener. Chapters cover topics including the analysis of music signals, adjustment of music to a particular music hall, and the temporal and spatial properties of sound fields. The book also considers the fusing of acoustics and architecture, design studies of concert halls, and design studies of acoustic spaces and electroacoustic systems, and the most suitable materials to be used in concert hall construction.
