    • Sound for 3D cinema and the sense of presence 

      André, Cédric R.; Embrechts, Jean-Jacques; Verly, Jacques G.; Rébillat, Marc; Katz, Brian F. G. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      While 3D cinema is becoming more and more established, little effort has focused on the general problem of producing a 3D sound scene spatially coherent with the visual content of a stereoscopic-3D (s-3D) movie. As 3D ...
    • Evaluating listeners’ attention to and comprehension of serialy interleaved, rate-accelerated speech 

      Brock, Derek; Peres, S. Camille; McClimens, Brian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In Navy command operations, individual watchstanders must often concurrently monitor two or more channels of spoken communications at a time, which in turn can undermine information awareness and decision performance. ...
    • 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 ...
    • EEG Sonification For Epilepsy Surgery: A Clinical Work-In Progress 

      Giller, Cole A.; Murro, Anthony M.; Park, Yong; Strickland, Suzanne; Smith, Joseph R. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      Although EEG sonification has been well studied, little attention has been paid to its use to identify the seizure focus in patients undergoing epilepsy surgery. We explore the requirements imposed by this application, and ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • The Sounds of the Discussion of Sounds 

      Bethancourt, Matt (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      The Sound of the Discussion of Sounds is a real-time composition and performance computer program built in PHP, MySQL, Max/MSP and Ableton Live that allows listeners to musically hear the subtle changes that occur over ...
    • Interfacing the Earth 

      Beyls, Peter (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      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 ...
    • Who's sonifying data and how are they doing it? A comparison of ICAD and other venues since 2009 

      Bearman, Nick; Brown, Ethan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      What disciplines are applying data sonification, and what synthesis tools are they using to make the sounds? These questions are basic to understanding the state of sonification today, but they are surprisingly difficult ...
    • 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 ...
