WATER - A 90-mm loudspeaker is mounted on a shower spray. A second 140-mm loudspeaker is positioned on the floor of the shower box. Both loudspeakers are driven by a sound texture obtained by algorithmic elongation [1] of a 2-second rain sample, superimposed to spare sonic drops obtained by Mellin/scale filtering [2] of a single drop sample (300 ms). The shower box is 70x70x190-cm, with the door open. Sound is captured by a Beyerdynamic MCD-101 omnidirectional digital microphone positioned at about 50-cm below the sounding spray.---------- references ---------- [1] L. Lu, L. Wenyin and H.
