Terminologie par holt

Post by SylvainP »

Je vous laisse lire une publication de Gordon Holt qui est Monsieur approche scientifique a la reproduction sonore.

Il s'agit d'un petit dictionnaire du subjectivisme musicale :)

http://ccrma.stanford.edu/~kuangzn/proa ... ossary.doc

Voici quelques passages pour vous donner un avant gout :
The language of subjectivity has been around since before Edison. Musicians have long been familiar with terms like "mellow," "strident," "rich," and "euphonic," but the advent of reproduced music introduced new kinds of sonic qualities for which new descriptive terms were needed. The 1953 Radiotron Designer's Handbook---for its time, the "bible" of electronics design---listed more than 70 terms, most of which are still in use today.

Stereophile magazine, launched in 1962, was the first to review audio products on the basis of their sound rather than their measurements. Stereophile and other like-minded magazines have expanded subjectivity's working 70-word vocabulary to over 300 terms, all of which are listed and defined in this series of articles.
Different subjective terms often have the same meaning, and some have more than one meaning. Don't be put off by this. Subjective terminology can never be as precise as the language of physics. But imprecise or not, it's still a much more meaningful way of describing reproduced sound than just saying, "It sounds fine."

Il me semble que c'est supersuperflu: la quantité des termes utilisés sur ce forum pour décrire le son, comment il sonne, témoigne des connaissances linguistiques de ses membres!
