AbstractEveryday, in the common activities of life, we experience to listen to music or sounds in different environments (the metro, elevators, the bathroom, etc). Every environment has different acoustic properties that can be preferred or annoying for a determined kind of music or for a different purpose. In this project we analyzed those properties for 4 different rooms, and correlated them with the purpose they have, and with the perceptual opinions of 5 musicians playing the same song in all of them. In this way we show which properties are preferred for each purpose of the room, which characteristics are annoying to the musicians, and why.
