The Pleasurize Music Foundation are supporting academic research in the topic
of 'Loudness Perception and the Dynamic Range of Reproduced Music' conducted
by Dr Rob Toulson at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK.

The key objectives for this research include:

- Development and gathering of case study material for use in statistical
listening tests and educating listeners and sound engineers in the merits and
issues regarding dynamic range and loudness perception.

- The design and implementation of thorough statistical listening tests to
enhance the understanding of psychoacoustic factors with respect to perceived
loudness and the dynamic range of reproduced music.

- Creation of education strategies for enhancing listener awareness and
engineering best practice with respect to audio mastering.

- A technical review of the engineering processes used to give an increased
perceived loudness in music reproduction with the aim of identifying and
qualifying new engineering methods for best practice.

Dr Rob Toulson's research will take the form of an initial 6 month study to
generate preliminary published outputs. Research funding is also being sought
to extend this initial study to a continuous and complete investigation.
