Audio data associated with a plurality of originating sources is obtained, the audio data directed to a participant entity. An originating entity associated with one of the originating sources is determined. A listener focus indication is obtained from the participant entity indicating a listener focus on the originating entity. A spatial positional relationship is determined between the participant and originating entities. A filtering operation is initiated to enhance a portion of the audio data associated with the originating entity, the portion enhanced relative to another portion of the audio data that is associated with the originating sources other than the first one. A spatialization of a stream of the first portion that is based on a participant positional listening perspective is initiated, based on the spatial positional relationship. Transmission of a spatial stream of audio data is initiated to the participant entity, based on the filtering operation and spatialization.
