Title: A perspective on the limited potential for simultaneity in auditory display
Alternative Title: Simultaneity and participation: how we can not listen to everything at the same time
Author: Gossmann, Joachim
Abstract: 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 streams is characterized by a differentiation in the types of stream: Speech, music and sound effects are only three examples in an open polymorphism of what could be described as perceptual strategies through which we access the sounding world. The differentiable-simultaneous manifold of environmental streams allows perceptual participation only in a certain number of streams at the same time - only one speaking voice, one sense of "harmony", a single "rhythm", and so forth: We propose a re-basing of sonfication strategies not on the definition of external mechanisms, but on the definition and application of new modal strategies that are circumscribed and accessible through 'what is not possible to perceive at the same time'.
