Re: Granular synthesis and auditory segregation

Dear List,

I don't know of anybody who has used granular synthesis to study
segregation of textures, although I suggested it in my 1990 book "Auditory
Scene Analysis" (pp. 116-122).  However, I'd be interested in hearing from
anybody who had either done such a study or proposed to do one.
