Understanding and simplified modeling of the head related transfer function (HRTF) holds the key to many applications in spatial audio. We develop an analytical solution to the problem of scattering of sound from a sphere in the vicinity of an infinite plane. Using this solution we study the influence of a nearby scattering rigid surface, on a spherical model for the HRTF
