dc.description.abstractThis paper presents an overview of an ongoing research project investigating the perception of musical timbre by people with normal hearing, impaired hearing, and cochlear implants. The investigation of musical timbre has been limited to the perception of steady-state frequency spectra from 10 different sources, including sampled acoustic instruments, sung vowels, and synthetic waveforms. Subjects were tested in three different tasks: I) the discrimination of spectra when presented in all possible pairs; 2) the measurement of the internally-perceived frequency spectra using a forward-masking paradigm; and 3) the identification of the spectra by name with the restricted set of sound sources from which they were sampled. Preliminary results from the normally hearing subjects show the spectra to be 99.8% distinguishable, and that significant detail is evident in the internal spectral envelopes from different sounds. There was around 50%-correct identification of stimuli by name with the original sound sources from which they were sampled. The experimental work with hearing impaired and cochlear implant subjects has commenced.en_US
