Sonification of Sound: Tools for Teaching Acoustics and Audio
MetadataShow full item record
This paper describes a collection of examples of how the teaching of acoustics and technical audio may be aided through sonification. Examples are fixed demonstrations, small programs in Max/MSP, and sonifications as part of a sound analysis program (PsySound3) developed by the authors. Examples include auditory graphs of frequency-dependent parameters used in architectural acoustics, sonifications of room modal distributions, sonifications of room impulse responses, simplification of input sound using spectral moments and the Hilbert transform, interactive sonification of head-related transfer functions and vowel formants, and sonifications of sound analysis parameters, including the output of psychoacoustical models.
