Music / Sound / Noises: Developments in Audio

Sound envelopes us all the time. While near perfect audio quality seems guaranteed today, a number of new technologies enables new applications.

Some of these technologies are motivated by a better understanding of hearing, of the way human ears and brain listen to the world around us.
