Publication Detail
Perceived quality of a singing performance: The importance of context
Abstract
The chapter summarizes the author’s work developing a theoretical framework in relation to perceived quality in a singing performance. This work focused on singing performances rather than singing performance related effects, such as visual feedback, audience dynamics, live listening logistics, and other factors that might be part of a general “experience” but not necessarily part of the voiced/sung product. In addition to discussing CReMA, a technological solution the author devised for increasing the specificity of response measurement to musical performances, two examples are offered of unpublished empirical research as vignettes of the context-sensitive and context-specific nature of the singing voice in performance. The outcomes support that although assessments of singing and the perception of quality or beauty in a singing performance are not something that can be made using a deterministic rule-system, there is value in systematically acquiring more evidence specific—and also sensitive—to various singing contexts.
