Effect of a Global Metronome on Ensemble Accuracy in Networked Music Performance

Several rhythmic experiments with pairs drawn from a group of 23 subjects were performed to investigate the effect of a global metronome on the ensemble accuracy in Networked Music Performance (NMP). Artificial delays up to 91 ms were inserted into the audio transmission between the subjects. To investigate the dependencies between delay times, ensemble accuracy and the highly synchronized global metronome, the experiments were evaluated in terms of tempo acceleration, imprecision and subjective judgment of the ensemble play. The results show that the global metronome leads to a stabilization of the tempo acceleration caused by the delay. The imprecision stays constant to a threshold of about 28 ms and 36 ms, depending on the delay compensating strategy the subjects used. Winner of the 147th AES Convention Student Paper Award
