    • Analytic listening: A case study of radio production 

      Barbour, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Radio is the ultimate auditory display: all information is conveyed aurally to a listener. Sound from a radio invokes visual images in the imagination of a listener, the theatre of the mind. Listening to a radio voice ...

      Godfrey, Justin; Lindsay, Jeffrey; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Point estimation is a relatively unexplored facet of sonfication. We present a new computer application, the Audio Abacus, designed to transform numbers into tones following the analogy of an abacus. As this is an entirely ...

      Cassidy, R. J.; Berger, J.; Lee, K.; Maggioni, M.; Coifman, R. R. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      The human ability to recognize, identify and compare sounds based on their approximation of particular vowels provides an intuitive, easily learned representation for complex data. We describe implementations of vocal tract ...
    • Auditory feedback of human EEG for direct brain-computer communication 

      Hinterberger, T.; Baier, G.; Mellinger, J.; Birbaumer, N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      The Thought-Translation-Device (TTD) is a Brain-Computer- Interface (BCI) that enables completely paralyzed patients to communicate by the use of their brain signals only. Selfregulation of brain signals (e.g. the slow ...
    • Auditory navigation performance is affected by waypoint capture radius 

      Lindsay, Jeff.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Non-speech audio navigation systems can be very effective mobility aids for persons with either temporary or permanent vision loss. Sound design has certainly been shown to be important in such devices [e.g. 1]. In this ...
    • Auditory versus visual spatial impression: A study of two auditoria 

      Cabrera, D; Nguyen, A.; Choi, Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Spatial impression refers to the attributes of subjective space beyond localization. In the field of auditorium acoustics, auditory spatial impression is often divided into `apparent source width', `envelopment' and sometimes ...
    • 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 ...
    • Capture and recreation of higher order 3D sound fields via reciprocity 

      Li, Z.; Duraiswami, R.; Gumerov, N. A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      We propose a unified and simple approach for capturing and recreating 3D sound fields by exploring the reciprocity principle that is satisfied between the two processes. Our approach makes the system easy to build, 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 ...
    • Connecting virtual sound and physical space in audio-augmented environments 

      Gossmann, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      This paper describes strategies to create multimodal coherences between sound and space in Audio-Augmented Environments. Visitors to AAEs wear motion-tracked wireless headphones displaying a location-aware, adaptive audio ...
    • 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 ...
    • Creating functional and livable soundscapes for peripheral monitoring of dynamic data 

      Mauney, Bradley S.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Sonifications must be studied in order to match listener expectancies about data representation in the form of sound. In this study, a system was designed and implemented for dynamically rendering sonifications of simulated ...
    • Cultivating design patterns for auditory displays 

      Barrass, S.; Adcock, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2004-07)
      Auditory Displays are quite well known in the research community, but very little of this experience is being transferred to product designers. The method of Design Patterns is well known to a number of design domains and ...
