Our auditory experience involves the experience of auditory objects?sequences of distinct sounds, or parts of continuous sounds?that are experienced as grouped together into a single sound or ?stream? of sounds. In this paper I argue that it is not possible to explain what it is to experience an auditory object as such?i.e. to experience a sequence of sounds as grouped?in purely auditory terms; rather, to experience an auditory object as such is to experience a sequence of sounds as having been (apparently) produced by the same source.
