Uninitiated Audience[edit]

Suggest add a definition for what this term means. I saw it in a documentary and am not sure what it entirely means so I'll leave the definition to someone educated in theater (or other person who knows). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.165.64.114 (talk) 17:59, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

New title?[edit]

As the article discusses the term 'audience' exclusively in terms of 'audience participation', it seems logical that the article should be given the latter title instead, with the redirect being changed to reflect the new title. Lawikitejana 07:15, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

I don't think their is enough material here to create two articles or that 'audience participation' really merits being an article in its own right. My vote is to keep the article as it is now for the time being. --Blacknightshade 18:14, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

Modern classical music audience[edit]

This section reads like an essay. It's not really a description of modern classical audiences, but rather speculation on audience decline. The use of the first person plural is also unencyclopedic in tone. It could perhaps be turned into a section on the history and development of classical audience etiquette, but the only bit that could really be salvaged in that case in the part about how the prohibition against clapping between movements is a relatively recent phenomenon, but even then it would require a reference. — Gwalla | Talk 05:18, 23 April 2008 (UTC)

Vienna New Year's Concert[edit]

Shouldn't the traditional Austrian New Year's Concert performance of the Radetzki March be included in this article, as an example of conductor's mastery, not just of the orchestra/band, but also of the audience's tempo/timing/volume of clapping to underscore this magnificent march, as adjunct to the Vienna Philharmonic's musical expertise, and an epitome every conductor has strived for since, at least, Karayan?

Suggestion of improvement for the Mediated audiences section[edit]

Hello all, I was reading this article and I believe the Mediated Audiences section could be improved by including more tecnical information about audience measurement. Research companies and media companies audit their audience results in several ways, one of them being the Peoplemeter. In the UK, TV audience measurements is done with the help of the company Barb, while in Brazil for example, IBOPE is in charge of such activity. What do you guys think about expanding the article in this, let's say more technical, way? Cheers, Zalunardo8 (talk) 17:47, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

the very first line of audience definition[edit]

The very first line in the definition here, describe audience who participate in a show..bla bla.. and then "they are called players" in video games.. Is it correct to say the players themselves as audience? Moreover I think that the definition should be general, not including a few examples only. Shouldn't it be like : Audience are those who take sheer pleasure in attending a performance or an art-form without getting directly involved in a major role in the delivery of that performance or art? and then including the examples for books, orchestras, TV shows etc. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Atulvivekmishra (talkcontribs) 21:45, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
