Perceptual analyses of action-related impact sounds

Abstract : Among environmental sounds, we have chosen to study a class of action-related impact sounds: automobile door closure sounds. We propose to describe these sounds using a model composed of perceptual properties. The development of the perceptual model was derived from the evaluation of many door closure sounds measured under controlled laboratory listening conditions. However, listening to such sounds normally occurs within a natural context, which probably modifies their perception. We therefore need to study differences between the real situation and the laboratory situation by following standard practices in order to specify the precise listening conditions and observe the influence of previous learning, expectations, action-perception interactions, and attention given to sounds. Our process consists in doing in situ experiments that are compared with specific laboratory experiments in order to isolate certain influential, context dependent components.
