-- Stewart H. Hulse, "Science"
Auditory Scene research addresses the matter of listening to advanced auditory environments, utilizing a chain of inventive analogies to explain the method required of the human auditory process because it analyzes combinations of sounds to get better descriptions of person sounds. In a unified and finished manner, Bregman establishes a theoretical framework that integrates his findings with an strangely wide variety of past learn in psychoacoustics, speech belief, track concept and composition, and computing device modeling.

Sample text

How can the environment alter the clues in ways that make them subject to error? What would be the best way to combine these clues if some of them are subject to error? Whereas the following chapters maintain this attitude, they also deal with a large body of empirical data and try to keep the specula­ tion within the bounds of what is supportable by that evidence. There are certain things that they do not do. They do not attempt to offer physiological explanations or proposals about explicit computational mechanisms.

However, it is easy to show that these are not the basic reasons for the lack of closure. The problem in this figure is that the visual system does not know where the evidence is incomplete. Look at what happens when the picture is shown with the mask present as in figure 1 . 1 4. The visual system quickly joins the fragments without the observer having to think about it. The Gestalt principle of closure has suddenly come alive in the presence of the mask. What information could the mask be providing?

In the mixed spectrogram shown in figure 1 . 4 of chapter 1 , there are two interesting classes of regions: those in which the visible par­ tials are primarily the result of one signal and others in which they are a hopelessly tangled mixture. If the auditory system were capable of taking the dear views of a single signal and grouping them sequen­ tially with one another on the basis of similarity, it could get at least a partial picture of the individual signal, perhaps no worse than the picture of the B's obtained from the fragments of figure 1 .
