    • Aural maps, neural futures 

      Walsh, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      ``If the mental objects of philosophy, art, and science have a place it will be in the deepest synaptic fissures, in the hiatuses, intervals, and mean-times of the non-objectifiable brain, in a place where to go in search ...
    • A flexible framework for real-time sonification with sonart 

      Wilson, R. S.; Berger, J.; Yeo, W. S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)

    • External auditory representations of programs: Past, present, and future - an aesthetic perspective 

      Vickers, P. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      This paper provides a summary of previous work done in the area of external auditory representations of programs (known as program auralisation). A brief historical review is given followed by a short summary of the ...
    • How to tackle auditory interface aesthetics? Discussion and case study 

      Leplaitre, G.; McGregor, I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      This paper discusses the importance of auditory interface aesthetics and presents an empirical investigation of sound aesthetics in context. The theoretical discussion examines the relationship between sound aesthetics and ...
    • Comparing and reusing visualisation and sonification designs using the ms-taxonomy 

      Nesbitt, K. V. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Comparing designs of sonifications is difficult enough but comparing a visual display with a sound display is much harder. Yet the designer of multi-sensory displays would like to make sensible decisions about when to use ...
    • Control and measurement of apparent sound source width and its applications to sonification and virtual auditory displays 

      Potard, G.; Burnett, I. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      The aim of this paper is to investigate the possibility of using the spatial extent of sound sources as a mean of carrying information in sonification designs. To do so, we studied the accuracy of the perception of ...
