Question/Answer session The below has the question in text form, with a link to the audio form. The answer is typically in audio form only. The audio should open in a new window, close that to return to this page.

1 Unidentified audience member: Maybe you haven’t dealt with this because you deal with individual voices, but in our world, we have to deal with trained and untrained singers sitting next to each other singing at the same time. What would you suggest? Audio link.

2 Linda Carroll: This is fabulous work you are doing; this is really great, great stuff. We need another hour and a half to really sort out what you are tossing our way. Does this mean that the more highly trained a singer, the more you need to stay out of a chorus? Audio link.

3 David Howard, England: Two points: You made a song comparison between trained and untrained, and what I didn’t quite understand I think when you said it, you said these were the sounds these singers never actually made, and if that is the case, how realistic is that as a comparison? Two: On the overall loudness level you were just talking about, some years ago a study was done on the overall loudness level of trombonists in a orchestra to work out whether the people in front of the trombones might be hitting the kind of noise induced hearing loss levels when you integrate the level with time, and I think the answer was in Wagner orchestral music, it was just about there, but on the whole it was safe. Is there anything to say about these tenors about how long you should be in front of them? Audio link.

4 Ron Scherer: Would you clarify something please; methodology-wise; you have all the components of the sound being produced, and you take the levels of each component and add them so you have a complex sound. What is the justification? Is the justification really strong that you can actually add these to get the overall loudness, or is there some sort of error introduced with that that you have to explain? Audio link.
