    • An Overview of Algorithmic Music Composition in the Noteworks Software Platform 

      Alexander, Robert; Umbaugh, John; Turley, Patrick (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-06)
      Noteworks is music composition software that re-imagines the way music is created, played, and shared. Users create musical compositions by building networks and interacting with them in real time. Noteworks reduces the ...
    • Audio-Visual Renderings for Multimedia Navigation 

      Bouchara, Tifanie; Katz, Brian F. G.; Jacquemin, Christian; Guastavino, Catherine (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Our study focuses on multimodal information access to audiovisual databases, and evaluates the effect of combining the visual modality with audio information. To do so, we have developed two new exploration tools, which ...
    • 3D real-time auralization with separate rendering of direct sound, reflections and directional late reverberation 

      Lesoinne, S; Werner, N; Embrechts, J. J (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Auralization in room acoustics is created by the convolution of an anechoic audio signal with the RIR (room impulse response), either computed or measured at the receiver location. This paper addresses the directional RIRs ...

    • Real-time Sound Synthesis Using an Inexpensive Wireless Game Controller 

      Jagadeesan, Sharman; Gröhn, Matti (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Due to the development of the sensor technology it is possible to manufacture wireless multi-degrees of freedom controllers at reasonable costs. We have tested one manufactured by a small finnish start-up company in ...
    • Road, River and Rail: A Multi-Interactive Composition 

      del Valle Méndez, Jorge García (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      road, river and rail is not only a musical composition in the usual sense. It is also a sort of multi-interaction on different levels between real and virtual life. These interaction-levels comprise, not only a ...
    • From Metaphor to Medium: Sonification as Extension of Our Body 

      Gossmann, Joachim (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Following Marshal McLuhan’s perspective on media as extensions of man, sonification for the generation of knowledge can be regarded as an extension of our auditory sense toward previously imperceptible properties of our ...
