Clarifications of some terms.
With all the heavier topics under discussion in this forum, my request
for information could be a bit trivial, but am hoping for your indulgence.
I have read about "consonance" and dissonance" and have assumed a kind
of understanding of these, but then I have also read about "ringing" and
"harshness", and have been wondering whether there is a relationship
between these terms and how one would describe this difference.
My own assumption has been that the auditory system performs its
frequency analysis in its own unique way, and a clearer understanding of
these terms may show that it is not based on our present analytical
models. If one is trying to develop a different model, than the test
stimuli used for auditory psychological experiments could also be
drastically different than those usually described. Therefore, a better
understanding of the above terms would be helpful.
Thanks in anticipation, cheers,
