In order to design a dedicated Concert hall for Gamelan Sunda, first of all, it is important to determine the temporal and spectral parameters of Gamelan Sunda Music (Degung Music). Gamelan Sunda’s music compositions are strongly affected by the sound envelope and timbre. The fundamental frequencies of instrument keys also affect the musical scale, notes placing and the communication between the musical ensembles. The acoustical parameters of the anechoic studio recorded sound waves has been analyzed to determine the acoustical parameters. The sound envelopement factors have been compared with the note configuration in the musical composition, in order to analyze the influence of the sound envelopement to the music composition. In addition, the effective duration of the autocorrelation has also been analyzed to determine the preffered reverberation time in the proposed Concert hall for Gamelan Sunda.
Keywords : Gamelan Sunda, concert hall, the effective duration of the autocorrelation, reverberation time.
