Abstract [en]

The research project ‘Room for Interpretation: Musical Performance Interacting with Room Acoustics’, funded by the Swedish Research Council, is conducted at the Piteå School of Music, Luleå University of Technology. The project engages researchers within musical performance, musicology and audio technology, most of them professionally active as performers. The objective is to investigate how musical interpretation is influenced by and can interact with room acoustics. Important goals are to develop new ways for musicians to work consciously with room acoustics, using acoustic properties for artistic purposes, to facilitate a more profound exchange of ideas on artistic aspects of room acoustics between musicians, and to increase the possibilities for taking into account the musician’s perspective in the planning of concert rooms. The core of the project is a series of performances in the concert hall Studio Acusticum, Piteå, whose ceiling can be raised and lowered, enabling variable acoustic conditions. Performances within the project include solo instruments, chamber ensembles, and a choir. Each constellation performs in different acoustics but otherwise under identical conditions. The result is evaluated individually by each member of the research team, in addition to measurements of dynamics and tempo. Questions dealt with include how acoustic-related interpretive strategies can be formulated, and how acoustics can be tailored to a particular interpretative idea. Preliminary results show significant differences between the performer’s immediate post-performance evaluation and after listening to a recording of the same performance. Possibly acoustic-related discrepancies between experienced and measured tempi have been found among both performers and listeners.
