Reverberation is a chief phenomenon determining the quality of our acoustic sensations. Concert halls designers have the goal of enabling musicians to employ this effect. Nevertheless, even such dedicated spaces include acoustic phenomena distorting the fi nal shape of sound. Various types of sound wave refl ection depend on concert hall size, the hardness and texture of building materials, the arrangement of furnishings, and audience presence: factors de- termining the quality of sound. Such interaction increases in enclosed, atypi- cally constructed spaces that generate effects available for use in musical per- formance, e.g. the recording of jazz trumpeter Tomasz Stańko’s Music from Taj Mahal and Karla Cavas . Intensive reverberation allows new sound qua- lities to emerge in the acoustic space, which suggests that infl uenced by the discussed acoustic phenomena, sound may become to an extent independent.
