      Research into the origins of music and language can shed new light on musical representation, including program music and more recent incarnations such as data sonification. Although sonification and program music have ...
    • A Comparison between the Efficacy of Task-Based Vs. Data-Based sEMG Sonification Designs 

      Verona, Daniel; Peres, S. Camille (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Historically, many sonification designs that have been used for data analysis purposes have been based on data characteristics and have not been explicitly based on the listener’s task. These sonification designs have ...
    • How Do People Think They Remember Melodies and Timbres? Phenomenological Reports of Memory for Nonverbal Sounds 

      Nees, Michael A.; Harris, Joanna; Leong, Peri (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Memory for nonverbal sounds such as those used in sonifications has been recognized as a priority for cognitiveperceptual research in the field of auditory display. Yet memory processes for nonverbal sounds are not ...
    • Did You Feel That? Developing Novel Multimodal Alarms for High Consequence Clinical Environments 

      Alirezaee, Parisa; Girgis, Roger; Kim, TaeYong; Schlesinger, Joseph J.; Cooperstock, Jeremy R. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Hospitals are overwhelmingly filled with sounds produced by alarms and patient monitoring devices. Consequently, these sounds create a fatiguing and stressful environment for both patients and clinicians. As an attempt ...
    • Evaluating Two Ways to Train Sensitivity to Echoes to Improve Echolocation 

      Heller, Laurie M.; Schenker, Arley; Grover, Pulkit; Gardner, Madeline; Liu, Felix (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      We investigated whether training sighted individuals to attend to information in echoes could improve their active echolocation ability. We evaluated two training techniques that involved artificially generated sounds. Both ...
    • Participatory Design Research Methodologies: A Case Study in Dancer Sonification 

      Landry, Steven; Jeon, Myounghoon (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Given that embodied interaction is widespread in Human-Computer Interaction, interests on the importance of body movements and emotions are gradually increasing. The present paper describes our process of designing and ...
    • Frequency-Selective Silencing Device for Digital Filtering of Audible Medical Alarm Sounds to Enhance ICU Patient Recovery 

      Schlesinger, Joseph J.; Reynolds, Elizabeth; Sweyer, Brittany; Pradham, Alyna (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Free-field auditory medical alarms, although widely present in intensive care units, have created many hazards for both patients and clinicians in this environment. The harsh characteristics of the alarm noise profile ...
    • Influences of Visual and Auditory Displays on Aimed Movements Using Air Gesture Controls 

      Sterkenburg, Jason; Landry, Steven; Jeon, Myounghoon (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      With the proliferation of technologies operated via in-air hand movements, e.g. virtual/augmented reality, in-vehicle infotainment systems, and large public information displays, there remains an open question about ...
    • Empirically Informed Sound Synthesis Application for Enhancing the Perception of Expressive Robotic Movement 

      Bellona, Jon; Bai, Lin; Dahl, Luke; LaViers, Amy (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Since people often communicate internal states and intentions through movement, robots can better interact with humans if they too can modify their movements to communicate changing state. These movements, which may be ...
    • Spectral Parameter Encoding: Towards a Framework for Functional-Aesthetic Sonification 

      Tsuchiya, Takahiko; Freeman, Jason (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
      Auditory-display research has had a largely unsolved challenge of balancing functional and aesthetic considerations. While functional designs tend to reduce musical expressivity for the fidelity of data, aesthetic or musical ...
