Unfortunately, our visual simulations are essentially "silent movies" with sound added as an afterthought. In this talk, I will describe recent progress on physics-based sound synthesis algorithms that can help simulate rich multi-sensory experiences where graphics, motion, and sound are synchronized and highly engaging. I... Read More
