Headphone Listening for Glitch Music


This thesis is an investigation into determining the most successful binaural movement techniques for use in the genre of Glitch Music. A number of different movement techniques were tested via a perceptual listening experiment. The test was designed to decipher which movement techniques would give the maximum sense of envelopment to listeners in a Glitch composition. The studies demonstrate that Glitch music can be made more enveloping through the addition of Binaural synthesis processing. In the course of the studies both an online listening methods survey and a perceptual listening test were conducted.
