      Worrall, David (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      The unreliable detection of information in sonifications of multivariate data that employ parameter mapping is generally thought to be the result of the co-dependency of psychoacoustic dimensions. The method described ...

      The study of human brain functions has dramatically increased greatly due to the advent of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI), arguably the best technique for observing human brain activity that is currently ...
    • 1/F Noise and Auditory Aesthetics: Sonification of a Driven Bead Pile 

      Winters, R Michael (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      “1=f noise” describes the behavior of many naturally occurring complex dynamical systems over time. Perhaps more surprising than its ubiquity in nature is its prevalence in speech and especially music. Current research ...
    • Wafe-Field Synthesis: State of the Art and Future Applications 

      Lopez, Jose J; Cobos, Maximo; Pueo, Basilio (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      Wave-Field Synthesis (WFS) has become one of the most promising spatial sound reproduction systems. The most basic difference of WFS in comparison to other available systems is that the acoustic field is accurately synthesized ...
    • To What Extent do Listeners use Aural Information When it is Present 

      Brock, Derek; McClimens, Brian (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      In three of the manipulations in a 2009 dual-task performance study, virtual auditory cues were used to alert participants to the onset of three kinds of decision events in the secondary, but more demanding of the two ...
    • Tonal DisCo: Dissonance and Consonance in a Gaming Engine 

      Nguyen, Vinh Xuan (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      Whilst there are several existing toolkits specifically designed for sonification, there has been little investigation into the utilization of computer game engines for sonification. This paper will demonstrate the ...
    • The sound of Rowing Stroke Cycles as Acoustic Feedback 

      Schaffert, Nina; Mattes, Klaus; Effenberg, Alfred O (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      Acoustic feedback offers promising opportunities to enhance the perception of athletes in regards of the modification of movement patterns and control in technique training. Sound conveys time-critical structures that are ...
    • Using Sound to Represent Uncertainty in Future Climate Projections for the United Kingdom 

      Bearman, Nick (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      This paper compares different visual and sonic methods of representing uncertainty in spatial data. When handling large volumes of spatial data, users can be limited in the amount that can be displayed at once due to visual ...
    • On the Road to Design: Developing a Sonified Route Navigator for Cyclists 

      Moulster, Andrew; Stockman, Tony (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      This paper describes the development of a system that uses sonification to assist cyclist’s navigation. The focus of the paper is on the design process, the decisions made and the methods used to make design choices. An ...
    • Sonification of Emotion I: Film Music 

      Schubert, Emery; Ferguson, Sam; Farrar, Natasha; McPherson, Gary E. (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      This paper discusses the uses of sound to provide information about emotion. The review of the literature suggests that music is able to communicate and express a wide variety of emotions. The novel aspect of the present ...
    • Sonification of 3D Scenes Using Personalized Spatial Audio to Aid Visually Impaired Persons 

      Bujacz, Michal; Skulimowski, Piotr; Strumillo, Pawel (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      The research presented concerns the development of a sonification algorithm for representation of 3D scenes for use in an electronic travel aid (ETA) for visually impaired persons. The proposed sonar-like algorithm utilizes ...
    • Sonification of Emotions II: Live music in a pediatric hospital 

      Preti, Constanza; Schubert, Emery (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      In this paper, we argue that music can be used to sonify emotions. Further, we propose that the ‘sonification of emotion’ conceptualization can explain some aspects of the practice of playing music in hospitals. Music can ...
    • Simulating the Electroweak Phase Transition: Sonification of Bubble Nucleation 

      Winters, R. Michael; Blaikie, Andrew; O'neil, Deva (International Community for Auditory Display, 2011-06)
      As an applicaton of sonification, a simulation of the early uni- verse was developed to portray the phase transition that occurred shortly after the Big Bang. The Standard Model of particle physics postulates that a ...
    • Sonification of Brain and Body Signals in Collaborative Tasks Using a Tabletop Musical Interface
