A Case for Multi-Resolution Auditory Scene Analysis

Sue Harding, Georg Meyer

Keele University, UK

A commonly held view of auditory scene analysis is that complex auditory environments are segregated into separate perceptual streams using primitive cues that can be attended to separately. We argue that this view is inconsistent with the majority of perceptual data reported in the literature and propose an alternative model that is based on a primary, low resolution signal representation used in a passive pattern matching stage, augmented by secondary, high resolution representations that can be used in an active pattern matching stage to formulate hypotheses about the auditory scene.
