Online Manchester Soundscape Experiment

Study description

I am conducting an evaluation study on how people perceive Urban Soundscapes and how these urban sounds affect their emotional states through online questionnaires.

The experiment consists of the participant watching six 30-second video samples (360 degrees videos and spatial audio) from different places in Greater Manchester, United Kingdom. It starts with a basic consent form, some demographic questions, and specifications of the digital system to be used. Then, each video followed by questions regarding the predominant sound source, four soundscape perceptual dimension types (Calm, Exciting, Chaotic, and Monotonous), and three emotional scales (SAM – Self Assessment Manikins – Valence, Arousal, and Dominance) are presented. The whole experiment should take around 10 to 20 min.
