Firework Salute Sound Characteristics and Perception: Background and Theory

K. L. Kosanke and B. J. Kosanke

Abstract: The aesthetics of the sound produced by exploding firework salutes is not well addressed in the scientific literature. This paper presents a brief summary of what is known about impulse sounds as it may apply to exploding firework salutes. Also included are three hypotheses relating to the aural and physical perception of such sounds by humans, in the hopes that someone will test and expand on them.
