      Schuett, Jonathan H.; Winton, Riley J.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2014-06)
      Weather data has been one of the mainstays in sonification research. It is readily available, and every listener has presumably had some form of experience with meteorological events to draw from. When we want to use ...
    • Cross-Modal Soundscape Mapping: Integrating Ambisonic Environmental Audio Recordings and High Dynamic Range Spherical Panoramic Photography 

      Carter, J. Parkman; Braasch, Jonas (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2014-06)
      We cannot “measure” the soundscape any more than we can “measure” the ocean, the city, or the wilderness. Being comprised of myriad complex elements, conditions and relationships between sound sources and sound perceivers, ...
