61 Ss (aged 16-38 yrs) with a wide range of formal music training were presented with ascending and descending C major scales, each followed by a single probe tone drawn from the 13-note chromatic scale. Ss were asked to decide whether the fit of the probe to the preceding context was good or poor.

Measured and compared accuracy of recognition for short (3-note) transposed melodic sequences with accuracy predicted by 3 models of recognition, each of which described a different degree of abstraction and synthesis of the musical intervals contained in the sequence.

Advocates that a framework for exploring the psychological effects of musical soundtracks (MSTs) should focus on meaning, structure, memory, awareness, and experimental aesthetics. MSTs concern 2 art forms (music and cinema) and 2 sensory modalities (auditory and visual). As such, they touch many as...

Studied performance on a direct distance estimation task in a large, complex environment as a function of variation in some members of the set of test locations. 36 1st-yr and 36 4th-yr undergraduates were asked to estimate distances for 7 sites in a campus building and to describe the strategies th...

Discusses the use of the 68040-based NeXT computer system for studies of auditory sequencing in which Ss track the time of occurrence of a sequence of tones, using a mouse that controls the position of sliders represented on the computer screen. The computer produces random orders of stimulus sequen...

Investigated the effects of musical soundtracks on 25 undergraduates' attitudes toward figures in a short animated film. In a preliminary study and in the main experiment, Ss saw the film accompanied by 1 of 2 soundtracks or with no soundtrack, or heard 1 of the 2 soundtracks alone. In the main...

Reviews the significance of acoustics in environmental design, noting that research on the office environment reveals that acoustics is a primary source of dissatisfaction. Problems of the hearing impaired are discussed, and design suggestions are offered. The significance of acoustic images, memori...
