June 16, 1992 To members of the AUDITORY list: I am looking for some references on two topics. The first is the role of abrupt onsets of signals in "alerting" the auditory system. I would like to be overinclusive in this search, including evidence from physiology, psychoacoustics, music, speech, or whatever. The second is for a music student who is interested in the use of space and spatial transformations in music. One question concerns the factors involved in getting a perceptually smooth spatial movement with live musicians, who are standing still at different locations, and are passing a musical line from one location (set of musicians) to another. Any references on spatial effects in music would be welcome. Thanks, - Al Bregman
