Audio Science in the Service of Art
Sean Olive (Director of Acoustic Research for Harman International)
“Audio Science in the service of art” is a philosophy in sound reproduction where the goal is to use science and technology to faithfully reproduce the art as the musical artist intended.
The art is the music, its performance, and the process of capturing it on the recording.
The audio system is not part of the art, and should neither add, remove or editorialize the artist’s message.
Audio components should not sound like musical instruments: Beethoven never wrote parts for loudspeaker and amplifier, so you shouldn’t be hearing them when listening to recordings of his music.
The perfect audio system has no sonic personality, no musical qualities, and is the system that you notice the least.
