Psychoacoustics in the NY Times

Sound, the Way the Brain Prefers to Hear It. Compelling. However, I’m disappointed that the article didn’t even briefly touch on the further difficulty of recreating the experience of listening to music in a live hall vs. your living room, outside of sound. The physical presence of people/chemistry of being in a group setting. The lighting. The architecture of the hall. The musical nuances. Seeing the conductor & the performers. Etc. Guess that would be a long article.
