    • 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 ...
    • Impoving the efficacy of auditory alarms in medical devices by exploring the effect of amplitude envelope on learning and retention 

      Gillard, Jessica; Schutz, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Despite strong interest in designing auditory alarms in medical devices, learning and retention of these alarms remains problematic. Based on our previous work exploring learning and retention of associations between ...

      We provide a short introduction to WindChime, a real-time web-driven audiovisual installation. Weather data from many world locations is gathered from a server and accommodated in a dynamic visual representation. The ...
    • Intuitive and Interactive Movement Sonification on a Heterogeneous RISC / DSP Platform 

      Brueckner, Hans-Peter; Wielage, Matthis; Blume, Holger (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      A major requirement for effective and interactive sonification in rehabilitation is the availability of a mobile platform. Portable state of the art motion capturing is achieved with inertial sensors. This paper presents ...
    • A Modular Computer Vision Sonification Model For The Visually Impaired 

      Banf, Michael; Blanz, Volker (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This paper presents a Modular Computer Vision Sonification Model which is a general framework for acquisition, exploration and sonification of visual information to support visually impaired people. The model exploits ...
    • Multi-dimensional synchronization for rhythmic sonification 

      Boyd, Jeffrey E.; Godbout, Andrew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Human locomotion is fundamentally periodic, so when sonifying gait, it is desirable to exploit this periodicity to produce rhythmic sonification synchronized to the motion. To achieve this rhythmic sonification, some ...
    • New Directions for Sonification of Expressive Movement in Music 

      Winters, R. Michael; Wanderley, Marcelo M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Expert musical performance is rich with visual cues that facilitate expressive communication. Previous sonifications in this domain have evaluated the saliency of mapping based upon a sound's direct visual correspondence. ...
    • Non-Speech Audio-Semiotics: A Review and Revision of Auditory Icon and Earcon Theory 

      Oswald, David (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The aim of this paper is to develop a theory and taxonomy of auditory signs, based on semiotics. For more than two decades, the discourse on non-speech audio interfaces has been dominated by a dichotomy between auditory ...
    • Perceptual effects of auditory information about own and other movements 

      Schmitz, Gerd; Effenberg, Alfred O. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In sport accurate predictions of other persons’ movements are essential. Former studies have shown that predictions can be enhanced by mapping movements onto sound (sonification) and providing audiovisual feedback [1]. The ...
    • A perspective on the limited potential for simultaneity in auditory display 

      Gossmann, Joachim (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The auditory environment is frequently described as a juxtaposition between an array of pre-disclosed auditory streams and a process of attentional selection. The orientation of attentional selection toward environmental ...
    • Physical navigation of visual timbre spaces with timbreID and DILIB 

      Brent, William (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      This paper summarizes recent development of two open source software libraries that enable auditory display in Pure Data (Pd), and describes developing projects that were achieved using the two packages in tandem. The ...
    • Recognition of Audified Data in Untrained Listeners 

      Alexander, Robert Lewis, II; O'Modhrain, Sile; Gilbert, Jason; Zurbuchen, Thomas; Simoni, Mary (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The effective navigation and analysis of large data sets is a persistent challenge within the scientific community. The objective of this experiment was to determine whether participants who received no training were able ...
    • Revisiting pulse rate, frequency and perceived urgency: have relationships changed and why? 

      Gonzalez, Christian; Lewis, Bridget A.; Baldwin, Carryl L. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      As the presence of technology within vehicles increases, alerts and warnings need to not only be salient, but also correctly mapped to events of varying time sensitivity. The goal of this research was to reevaluate key ...
    • Shaking up Earth Science: Visual and Auditory Representations of Earthquake Interactions 

      Aiken, Chastity; Simpson, David; Kilb, Debi; Shelly, David; Peng, Zhigang; Michael, Andy; Enescu, Bogdan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      One earthquake can influence subsequent earthquakes. To demonstrate such earthquake interactions, seismologists have used in the past "snapshot" static images. Although statis images can, by themselves, convey basic ...
