    • Auditory attention based on differences in median vertical plane position 

      Worley, J. W.; Darwin, C. J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      The first experiment described here asks whether listeners are able to selectively attend to one of two sentences differing in median vertical plane (MVP) location using a paradigm developed for azimuthal attention [1]. ...
    • Binaural factors in auditory continuity 

      Darwin, C. J.; Akeroyd, M. A.; Hukin, R. W. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      Auditory continuity is a powerful illusion which has implications for the efficient coding of sound. Although auditory continuity has been studied extensively as a monaural phenomenon, there have been few reports of the ...
    • Auditory navigation cues for a small 2D grid: A case study of the memory game 

      Hiipakka, J.; Lorho, G.; Holm, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      This paper presents an investigation on auditory navigation in a two-dimensional grid. A sonification of the memory game is proposed and utilized for evaluating user's ability to interact with objects in a small 2-D grid ...
    • Achorripsis: A sonification of probability distributions 

      Childs, E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      The 1957 musical composition Achorripsis by Iannis Xenakis was composed using four different probability distributions, applied over three different organizational domains, during the course of the 7 minute piece. While ...
    • Auditory seismology on free oscillations, focal mechanisms, explosions and synthetic seismograms 

      Dombois, Florian (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      The method of audifying seismograms and interpreting seismological data by ear enables a wide range of geophysical questions to be studied in a new manner. In this article we report about the actual state of research in ...
    • Advise: A new method for high definition virtual acoustic display 

      Takane, S.; Suzuki, Y.; Miyajima, T.; Sone, T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
      A method for high definition virtual acoustic display (VAD) based on a model called the ''virtual sphere model'' is introduced in this paper. This method is named ``ADVISE'' (Acoustic Display based on the VIrtual SpherE ...
