A museum-exhibit gives the visitors an opportunity to experience the relation between sounds and performance space. The impulse responses of real rooms have been measured and a simulator (Spatialisateur) has been programmed to imitate these spaces. Elementary volumes are imitated using simpler algorithms. A tracking system enhances the spatial illusion by compensating for the mouvements of the listener's head.
