      This paper introduces Tweetscapes, a system that transforms message streams from Twitter in real-time into a soundscape that allows the listener to perceive characteristics of twitter messages such as their density, origin, ...
    • Aquarium fugue: interactive sonification for children and visually impaired audience in informal learning environments 

      Jeon, Myounghoon; Winton, Riley J.; Yim, Jung-Bin; Bruce, Carrie M.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      In response to the need for more accessible Informal Learning Environments (ILEs), the Georgia Tech Accessible Aquarium Project has been studying sonification for the use in live exhibit interpretation in aquariums. The ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • A sonification of Kepler space telescope star data 

      Winton, Riley J.; Gable, Thomas M.; Schuett, Jonathan; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-06)
      A performing artist group interested in including a sonification of star data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope in their next album release approached the Georgia Tech Sonification Lab for assistance in the process. The ...
    • 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 ...
