Musical performance and the concert hall as a second instrument
Yoichi Ando

When music is performed on a concert-hall stage, the concert hall acts as a second instrument. To blend music and the sound field in any given concert hall, temporal and spatial musical expressions should be taken into consideration and both expressions may play an important role in composition and interpretation promoting the further creation of music.

Key words: music, sound field, temporal expression, spatial expression
