    In a recent cross-cultural study with participants from an autochthonous African population (Mafa) and Western participants, it was shown that the recognition of several emotional expressions (happy, sad, fearful) in ...
  • Spin Quartets. Sonification of the XY Model 

    Vogt, Katharina; Höldrich, Robert; Pirrös, David; Gattringer, Christof (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
    We present an intuitive sonification of data from a statistical physics model, the XY-spin model. Topological structures (anti-/vortices) are hidden to the eye by random spin movement. The behavior of the vortices changes ...
  • Sonophenology: A Tangible Interface for Sonification of Geo-Spatial Phenological Data at Multiple Time-scales 

    R. Ness, Steven; Reimer, Paul; Krell, Norman; Odowichuck, Gabrielle; Schloss, W. Andrew; Tzanetakis, George (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
    Phenology is the study of periodic biological processes, such as when plants flower and birds arrive in the spring. In this paper we sonify phenology data and control the sonification process through a tangible interface ...
  • Soundscape Mapping: A Tool for Evaluating Sounds and Auditory Environments 

    Flint, Tom; Turner, Phil; Leplâtre, Gregory; McGregor, Iain (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
    This paper describes a soundscape mapping tool, and provides an illustration of its use in the evaluation of an in-car auditory interface. The tool addresses three areas: communicating what people are listening to, ...
  • Sonification of NRL Dual-Task Data 

    Brock, Derek; McClimens, Brian (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
