Singing in Virtual Environments

Munhum Park holds a BSc in Physics from Seoul National University and an MSc and PhD from the University of Southampton. He was a senior scientist at Philips Research Eindhoven until 2014, then moved to Bangkok. Now an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Music, Science and Engineering, KMITL, his research focuses on spatial audio, stage acoustics, and the acoustics of Thai musical instruments.

It is generally assumed that professional musicians can adjust their performance based on the acoustic feedback from a venue. However, while some studies have explored the relationship between performance adaptation and acoustic parameters, particularly reverberation time, their findings have often been inconsistent and lacking statistical significance. This presentation will discuss a recent study conducted at KMITL, where 16 soprano singers performed in a virtual environment using a head-mounted display and headphones. The participants sang the same repertoire multiple times under different conditions, with visual and auditory scenes from three different venues presented either congruently (audio and video from the same venue) or incongruently. The presentation will detail the results from the audio data and the singers' survey responses, and will also address general issues related to the implementation of virtual reality systems for musicians.
