    • Sonification of Colour and Depth in a Mobility Aid for Blind People 

      Pun, Thierry; Deville, Benoit; Bologna, Guido (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      The See Color interface transforms a small portion of a colored video image into sound sources represented by spatialized musical instruments. Basically, the conversion of colors into sounds is achieved by quantization ...
    • 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 ...
    • Sonic Triptychon of the Human Brain 

      Hermann, Thomas; Baier, Gerold (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
