Testing (and our perception) of music quality is often subjective.

We listen to the music and our brains interpret the overall quality of the piece.

Subjective testing attempts to categorise the piece of music with descriptors such as Woolly, Bright, Boomy, Dark, Warm, Wide and Narrow amongst others to specify it’s quality.

Subjective testing by nature is not consistent and can be affected by taste, equipment and listening conditions.

Can we objectively measure attributes of the piece of music that will consistently and correctly give us a measure of it’s overall quality?
