Dear List members, One of my students is interested in starting a project on the segmentation of a stream of sound into a sequence of "objects". She is not necessarily going to study this process in music but in the context of simpler laboratory-generated sounds. I would be interested in seeing anything on this issue. Do any of you have any references on the formation of sequential objects? I know that the Gestalt psychologists drew some diagrammatic examples showing that a repetitive pattern would induce segregation between the repetitions, and also though that discontinuities would sause sequential objects to emerge. I also know of: Royer & colleagues, 1970, 1986 Handel 1973, 1981 Nabelek et al, 1973 Smuzynski & Houtsma, 1981 Preusser et al, 1970 Are there any more? Al Bregman
