Auditory roughness perception is an important, low-level component in dissonance perception. Four experiments on single-note stimuli were conducted to explore how roughness and dissonance from instrumental timbres and synthesised sound affect emotion recognition and cross-modal perception in listeners. Results suggest that auditory roughness and dissonance are important in conveying emotional properties like arousal and valence, as well as information on visual shape and texture.
