    Multi-Resolution Sound Rendering



    We present a new approximation technique based on hierarchical stochastic sampling that allows sound rendering in highly com- plex acoustic environments, i.e. scenes containing a large number of sound sources. We apply the algorithm to render scenes with many individual sources (such as a football stadium) and to auralize simulations of global sound propagation.
