      Harmony of the Spheres is a concert programme based on cosmology during the renaissance. Historic philosophical and astronomical concepts from ancient Greece until the modern age are accessed through the music of the 16th ...
    • A SUPERCOLLIDER CLASS FOR VOWEL SYNTHESIS AND ITS USE FOR SONIFICATION 

      Grond, Florian; Bovermann, Till; Hermann, Thomas (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      In this paper, we present building blocks for the synthesis of vowel sounds in the programming language SuperCollider. We discuss the advantages of using vowel based synthesis, and make a review where it has already ...
    • Auditory Cues for Gestural Control of Multi-Track Audio 

      Morrell, Martin J; Reiss, Joshua D; Stockman, Tony (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      This paper presents a study undertaken to evaluate user ratings on auditory feedback of sound source selection within a multi-track auditory environment where sound placement is controlled by a gesture control system. ...
    • Auditory Recognition of Floor Surfaces by Temporal and Spectral Cues of Walking 

      Fontana, Federico; Morreale, Fabio; Regia-Corte, Tony; Lecuyer, Anatole; Marchal, Maud (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      In a multiple choice auditory experimental task, listeners had to discriminate walks over floors made of concrete, wood, gravel, or dried twigs. Sound stimuli were obtained by mixing temporal and spectral signal components, ...
    • Chronoroom Clock: Peripheral Time Awareness Through Sound Localization 

      Zoon, Hanna; Bakker, Saskia; Eggen, Berry (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      Our auditory perception skills enable us to selectively place one auditory channel in the center of our attention while monitoring others in the periphery. Furthermore, we are able to accurately localize sound sources. In ...
    • Auditory Display as an Aid for Prosthetic Hand Manipulation: Preliminary Results 

      Gonzalez, Jose; Yu, Wenwei (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
