Quential aspect of organization and chapter 3 deals with the fusion of simultaneous auditory components into a single sound. Types of Explanation of These Phenomena In the following chapters, I will attempt to show how the auditory system goes about trying to solve the scene-analysis problem. The presentation will include a number of approaches. First, it will try to show what acoustic information the auditory system uses to solve this problem. An example of this would be the fact that the synchro­ nous onset of two frequency components is taken as evidence that 32 Chapter 1 they are parts of the same sound.

This application of sequential organization could help us deal with mixtures. 48 Chapter 2 The process of sequential grouping could also exploit a related situation. If it could find a portion of the mixture that contained an unmixed signal, it could analyze the portion of the mixture that im­ mediately followed it for components that resembled the unmixed ones, and extract them from the mixture. This second application of sequential grouping principles will not be discussed until chapter 3. Although it is also a sequential grouping process, it interacts with the processes that hold the simultaneous parts of a sound together and is therefore more naturally discussed together with them.

The scene-analysis approach relates the process more to the environment, or, more par­ ticularly, to the problem that the environment poses to the perceiver as he or she (or it) tries to build descriptions of environmental situa­ tions. Sequential versus Spectral Organization Perceptual Decomposition of Complex Sounds We have looked at two laboratory phenomena in audition that show the activity of the scene-analysis process: the streaming effect and the illusory continuation of one sound behind another.
