      The composition ``underground sounds'' - an interdisciplinary project including a concert piece as its artistic element - deals with the phenomenon of the constantly moving, therefore resonating earth and is based on data ...
    • The Laughing Swing: Interacting with Non-Verbal Human Voice 

      Rinott, Michal (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      This paper looks at non-speech uses of the human voice in interactive objects. A collection of projects using non-verbal voice, as input and as output, is briefly reviewed. The Laughing Swing - an interactive object using ...
    • Stream-Based Sonification Diagrams 

      Barrass, Stephen; Best, Virginia (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      The van Noorden Diagram describes the auditory streaming of two tones with changes in pitch difference and intertone onset interval (IOI). There are regions where the listener hears one stream or two streams, and an ambiguous ...
