    • Improvising with Spaces 

      Oliveros, Pauline (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
      This paper explores qualitative changes that occur in voices and instruments in relationships with changing spaces ordinarily held in a stationary paradigm of performance practice, spatial transformations and the effect ...
    • Peripheral Notification with Customized Embedded Audio Cues 

      Jung, Ralf; Schwartz, Tim (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
