      Presents three coding orientations for sound derived from the greater or lesser articulation of various modalities (see below):


  • ABSTRACT-SENSORY
    Less articulation = more abstract. The subject becomes generalized. Music is the most abstract form of sound yet can also be sensory (with increased articulation of, for example, friction).
  • NATURALISTIC
    An imitative approach -- what you would hear if you were really there. Often used in films, especially documentaries. Verisimilitude.
  • SENSORY
    Emotive impact is most important. Articulation is increased at the expense of naturalistic representation.

There may be configurations of these three.

Modalities:

  • dynamic range
  • pitch range
  • durational variation
  • perspectival depth
  • degrees of fluctuation (e.g. vibrato)
  • degrees of friction (e.g. smooth <--> rough)
  • absorption range (wet <--> dry)
  • degree of directionality
