Non-linear hearing

For the normal average organ of hearing of a person, there are some limit (threshold) minimum values ​​of the physical parameters of the sound field, at which there is still an auditory sensation. Such a threshold of audibility is the standardized sound intensity I0 = 10 … 12 W / m2 (close to the threshold of audibility at f = 1000 Hz in silence), as well as the corresponding sound pressure p0 = 2 * 10-5 Pa and sound energy density e03 * 10-15 J / m3. The hearing threshold is private dependent. Above the threshold of hearing is the hearing area. In fig. 1 shows a curve of the threshold of audibility. The upper threshold of audibility is also shown there, above which the destruction of the organ of hearing can occur – the pain threshold, which corresponds to pressure pmax = 150 … 200 Pa, which exceeds 107 times p0 = 2 * 10-5 Pa.

TENOR IS WHAT VOICE?

The voice that nature has endowed with man is capable of transmitting sounds not only in conversation and expression of emotions, but also when singing. The melody of the human voice is very rich, its palette is multicolored, and the pitch ranges are very individual.

The category of vocalists includes not only singers of classical parties, but also performers of recitations and artistic recitation. Classical Continue reading

What music preferences depend on

Music can be safely called a universal language. Regardless of the language in which certain songs are performed, for some reason we want to listen to specific music, even if we completely do not understand the meaning of the song.
Many scientists are struggling with questions: what determines the musical taste of a person, why some songs and music become “hackneyed” within a few years, while others are quickly forgotten. The same question haunts musicians and composers, as they want people to enjoy their work. There are many sociological studies that can be found through the printing of booklets, magazines, brochures on psychology. This literature is constantly updated and added. Let’s try to figure out a little with the reasons for our Continue reading
