Hi, I'm running a project that aims to investigate the perception of audio engineering processes in a rigorous experimental framework. My literature search so far has not turned up as much material as I imagine has been carried out in this area. I'm looking for previous work/articles that uses short excerpts of recorded music (2 - 10 sec) in a perceptual task (such as a discrimination task). I'd expected, for example, pair-discrimination experiments would have been used to evaluate perceptual coding (i.e. MP3) systems, and demonstrate perceptual equivalence, but I couldn't turn much directly applicable up (though I recently found a useful paper by Ken Steele). Any pointers to authors or labs (or even refs) for work in this area would be greatly appreciated. As is the norm I will collate all responses and post to the list if there is interest.
