  • Whither and wherefore the auditory graph? Abstractions & aesthetics in auditory and sonified graphsh 

    Vickers, Paul (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    A good deal of attention has been paid by the auditory display community to the sonification of graphical data and the term au- ditory graph has been used to describe this class of auditory map- pings. We contend that ...
  • Wireless gesture controllers to affect information sonification 

    Beilharz, Kirsty (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    This paper proposes a framework for gestural interaction with information sonification in order to both monitor data aurally and, in addition, to interact with it, transform and even modify the source data in a two-way ...
  • Using the major and minor mode to create affectively-charged earcons 

    Lemmens, Paul M.C (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    The importance of the structured fabrication of auditory (feedback) signals like earcons is common knowledge in the ICAD community. To create such structured families of earcons musical transformations like rhythm or pitch ...
  • Understanding immersive audio: A historical and socio-cultural exploration of auditory displays 

    Droumeva, Milena (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    This paper examines the historical and socio-cultural underpinnings of immersive audio seen from the paradigms of Acoustic Ecology and Acoustic Communication. The paper offers the view that in order to understand the many ...
  • Using sonification to detect weak cross-correlations in coupled excitable systems 

    Baier, Gerold; Hermann, Thomas; Lara, Oscar Manuel; Miller, Markus (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    We study cross-correlations in irregularly spiking systems. A single system displays spiking sequences that resemble a stochastic (Poisson) process. Linear coupling between two systems leaves the inter-spike interval ...
  • Thresholds of audibility for bone-conduction headsets 

    Walker, Bruce N.; Stanley, Raymond M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    Despite advantages of using headphones, including privacy and portability, headphones have one essential drawback: they cover the ears of the listener, thus deteriorating detection and localization of ambient sounds. ...
  • Travelling without moving: Auditory scene cues for translational self-motion 

    Valjamae, Aleksander; Larsson, Pontus; Vastfjall, Daniel; Kleiner, Mendel (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    Creating a sense of illusory self-motion is crucial for many Virtual Reality applications and the auditory modality is an essential, but often neglected, component for such stimulations. In this paper, perceptual optimization ...
  • Toward a sound design methodology: Application to electronic automotive sound 

    Suied, Clara; Susini, Patrick; Misdariis, Nicolas; Langlois, Sabine; Smith, Bennett K; McAdams, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    In the field of Human Machine Interfaces (HMI), there is a potential to convey numerous different messages by non- verbal-sounds. In the eighties, different approaches to the design of information-bearing sounds were ...
  • Training effect of a virtual auditory game on sound localization ability of the visually impaired 

    Ohuchi, Makoto; Iwaya, Yukio; Suzuki, Yoiti; Munekata, Tetsuya (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    It is essential for a visually impaired person to correctly identify the position of a sound source because such identification enables him/her to recognize his/her surroundings, including obstacles. We developed training ...
  • The effect of pitch shifts on the identification of environmental sounds: Design considerations for the modification of sounds in auditory displays 

    McClimens, Brian; Nevitt, Justin; Zhao, Cheng; Brock, Derek; Ballas, James A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    To examine the plausibility of dynamically adjusting the sounds presented by an auditory display, a study addressing the effects of pitch shifting on the identifiability of a set of forty-one environmental sounds was carried ...
  • Towards an auditory representation of complexity 

    Gossmann, Joachim (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    In applications of sonification, the information inferred by the sonification strategy applied often supersedes the amount of information which can be retrieved by the ear about the object of sonification. This paper focuses ...
  • Thirteen years of reflection on auditory graphing: Promises, pitfalls, and potential new directions 

    Flowers, John H (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    While developments in sound production hardware now make the creation of auditory graphs possible for casual users of personal computers, some of the same pitfalls to effective auditory display development that arose in ...
  • The 'audioview' - providing a glance at Java source code

    Cullen, Charlie; Coyle, Eugene (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    The TrioSon software allows users to map musical patterns to input data variables via a graphical user interface (GUI). The application is a Java routine designed to take input files of standard Comma Separated Values (CSV) ...
  • The detectability of headtracker latency in virtual audio displays 

    Brungart, Douglas S; Simpson, Brian D; Kordik, Alexander J (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    A critical engineering parameter in the design of interactive virtual audio displays is the maximum amount of latency that can be tolerated between the movement of the listener's head and the corresponding change in the ...
  • The local heat exploration model for interactive sonification 

    Bovermann, Till; Hermann, Thomas; Ritter, Helge (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    This paper presents a new sonification model for the exploration of topographically ordered high-dimensional data (multi-parameter maps, volume data) where each data item consists of a position and feature vector. The ...

    Nickerson, Louise Valgerour; Stockman, Tony (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
    The vast majority of computer interfaces do not translate well onto non-visual displays (e.g. for blind users, wearable/mobile computing, etc). Screen readers are the most prevalent aural technology to expose graphical ...
