Finally, the two research groups showed their work. Group II started —focused on binaural signals, composed by Pires-Martín-Tritz-Speranza- did an introduction to binaural perception, referring to the standards defined by AES 69 and the general concepts required (HRTF, acoustic convergence/divergerce, influence of visual stimuli, etc.). A summary of the experiments of the year was presented, along with conclusions and answers for the questions from the audience. Later, Group I —focused on space modeling, composed by Díaz-Ochat-Torres- presented an introduction of Francis Rumsey´s scene-based paradigm. After the theory, they showed and analysis of music in stereo based on FFT 1/3 octave, RMS and BPM that should be used on a generic scene construction presented by Rodríguez. The Faculty Advisor answered questions about the composing method of the scene, concerning source components, perceived distance and stereo localization.
