Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team

The research and development activity carried out by the Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team (formerly Room Acoustics Team) concentrates on the analysis, reproduction and synthesis of spatially considered sound environments. In other words, the localization of sound in space and the specific acoustical characteristics of a room or environment. The goal is to provide models and tools, which will enable composers to integrate the spatial organization of sound into their work from its conception through to the concert situation. [*]
