    • Spatialized audio for mixed reality theater: the Egyptian oracle 

      Nambiar, Ajayan; Jacobson, Jeffrey (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In the Egyptian Oracle, we project a simulation of an ancient temple onto a large projection screen. (See http://publicvr.org/egypt/oracle/shortvid.html). We create the illusion of a contiguous space by matching the scale ...
    • Exploring 3D audio for brain sonification 

      Schmele, Timothy; Gomez, Imanol (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Brain activity data, measured by functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), produces extremely high dimensional, sparse and noisy signals which are difficult to visualize, monitor and analyze. The use of spatial music ...
    • Sound Effect Metaphors for Near Field Distance Sonification

      This article presents a concept of distance sound source sonification for virtual auditory displays in the context of the creation of an assistive device for the visually impaired. In order to respond to user needs, three ...
    • "Trained ears" and "correlation coefficients": A social science perspective on sonification 

      Supper, Alexandra (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This paper presents a social science perspective on the field of sonification research. Adopting a perspective informed by constructivist science and technology studies (STS), the paper begins by arguing why sonification ...
    • Acoustic feedback training in adaptive rowing 

      Schaffert, Nina; Mattes, Klaus (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Acoustic information contributes to the timing of human movements as sound conveys time-critical structures subliminally. That is of crucial importance for the technique training in high performance sports, where a successful ...
    • Acoustic interface for tremor analysis 

      Pirrò, David; Wankhammer, Alexander; Schwingenschuh, Petra; Höldrich, Robert; Sontacchi, Alois (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In this paper we introduce new methods for real-time acoustical tremor diagnosis. We outline the problems of tremor diagnosis in the clinical context and discuss how sonification can complement and expand the existing tools ...
    • Hearing Nano-Structures: A Case Study in Timbral Sonification 

      Schedel, Margaret; Yager, Kevin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      We explore the sonification of x-ray scattering data, which are two-dimensional arrays of intensity whose meaning is obscure and non-intuitive. Direct mapping of the experimental data into sound is found to produce timbral ...
    • Sonification as a social right implementation 

      Revuelta Sanz, Pablo; Ruiz-Mezcua, Belén; Sánchez Pena, Jose M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The rights discussion begins in Europe, with Modernity, in the 17th century. In this historical moment, social and equal rights are supposed to be universal, and are used to fight against absolutism and the religion ...
    • A sonification proposal for safe travels of blind people 

      Revuelta Sanz, Pablo; Ruiz-Mezcua, Belén; Sánchez Pena, Jose M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Sonification is one of the most natural ways to complete the information perceived by the blinds. Thus, it has been widely applied to create assistive products to help these collective in their daily life. In our case, we ...
