Dictionary of expressions describing the perceived sound

One goal of the project was to establish a ¿dictionary¿ of expressions, which are used by organ builders for describing the stationary sound and attack of pipe sounds. First the organ builders collected the words they apply to characterize the sound quality (timbre and speech) of pipe sound. In the next step they had to find an agreement among themselves concerning the meaning of the expressions used, and they also had to establish a common terminology, which they wanted to use consequently in the project for characterizing pipe sounds.

Finally, detailed explanations of each expression were added by the organ experts. The explanations are given in English.

The expressions of the dictionary were compared to the results of the objective measurements and listening tests of the pipe sounds in order to find the relations between the measurable objective and subjective properties of pipe sounds and the expressions used by organ builders.

The connections and links between the expressions of the dictionary and the measurable properties of pipe sounds are also given in the dictionary.
The dictionary will be published in S&T journals.
