Figures

FIG. 1.

Frequency temporal modulation representation of sounds with high (top row), medium (middle row), and low (bottom row) mean unpleasantness ratings. The mean rating for each sound is given in parentheses; ratings were on a scale from 0 to 9, where high numbers correspond to greater perceived unpleasantness. Positive (negative) temporal modulation rate represents the downward (upward) movement of the ripple (see text).

Plots of measured and predicted unpleasantness ratings from the acoustic representation.

FIG. 3.

Relative weights associated with energy at different frequencies and temporal modulations for the first latent variable. Positive (negative) temporal modulation rate represents the downward (upward) movement of the ripple (see text).

Relative weights associated with energy at different frequencies and temporal modulations for the second latent variable. Positive (negative) temporal modulation rate represents the downward (upward) movement of the ripple (see text).

Tables

TABLE I.

Means and standard deviations of the unpleasantness ratings for each sound, ranked according to the mean rating magnitude. The rating scale ranged between 0 (least unpleasant) and 9 (most unpleasant). (Note: Where the type of sound source is not obvious from the sound name, sources were as follows. Angle grind: angle grinding a hollow metal pipe; blackboard chalk: scraping a piece of chalk along a blackboard; blackboard nails: dragging fingernails down a blackboard; brake double: bicycle brakes being applied; clarinet squeak/honk: misplaying a clarinet; electric drill: electric drill running freely at a range of speeds; fork bottle: scraping a steel fork along the surface of a ridged metal bottle; fork glass: scraping a fork along glass; guitar: electric guitar with distortion effects; knife bottle: scraping a sharp knife along the surface of a ridged metal bottle; mixer glass: metal whisk of a food mixer held against a glass bowl; record scratch: stylus of a record player dragged across the surface of a vinyl record; ruler bottle: dragging a plastic ruler along the surface of a ridged metal bottle; spade drag: dragging a metal spade along a concrete floor; and spade drop: dropping a metal spade onto a concrete floor).
