Basically, there are two main strategies existing to simulate the acoustics
of a room. Either, the physical aspects of the sound field of the room are reproduced
or the audible aspects are considered (the room should sound the same). The
first approach lacks of the availability of sophisticated physical models and
the second approach lacks of a proper understanding of the involved auditory
processing. With respect to the latter approach, the present talk introduces
an auditory model, which aims to describe the effective auditory signal processing
of reverberant sounds. For the model design, the concept of room reflection
masking has been employed, and thus, the model has been largely adapted to psychoacoustical
data of room reflection masking.

Assignment presentation 
Hugh Fisher has been collaborating with Dr Julie
Tolmie at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver on the
development of a visualiser for abstract mathematical
structures with dynamic variation over time. The program
is built on SGI Performer, a 3D toolkit heavily used by
flight simulator and Disneyworld entertainment authors.
The seminar will cover the project goals and experience
with using Performer and Python, but not the maths.
