Definitely a project that demonstrates the promise of the World Wide Web as you hyperlink your way through physics! Chapter 2 Perception Controlling the Perceptual Organization of Sound: Guidelines Derived from Principles of Auditory Scene Analysis (ASA) Albert S. Bregman and Wieslaw Woszczyk 1 Introduction In this article, we present a theory of the perceptual organization of sound and show how it applies to a variety of practical problems. Specifically, we explore many subtle factors that contribute to making a sound be perceived as being distinct from other sounds or as a component of another sound.

Such events, in turn, may come from natural sound sources, machines, human and animal movements and vocalizations, or musical instruments, to name a few. The goal of perception is to separately represent the sonic properties of each individual event, so that we can recognize it. Therefore, the auditory system faces the problem of somehow decomposing the pressure wave that reaches our ears in order to build up a number of separate representations. Auditory Scene Analysis (ASA) is the process by which the auditory system groups together, over frequency and over time, all the spectral components that belong to each individual sound source so that it can be recognized independently of the properties of co-occurring sounds [2].

In any case, timbre is a perceptual result, not a physical cause, and it may be simply a parallel result of the physical causes and not, in itself, a cause of grouping. Similarly, Factor 3 refers to the physical cause, fundamental frequency (F0 ), rather than the perceptual result, pitch, as one of the causes of grouping, even though different fundamental frequencies give different pitches. Again the perceptual result, pitch, may not be an actual cause of grouping, but just another perceptual effect of F0 .
