  • Evaluation of a non-visual auditory choropleth and travel map viewer 

    Biggs, Brandon; Toth, Christopher; Stockman, Tony; Coughlan, James M.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    The auditory virtual reality interface of Audiom, a web-based map viewer, was evaluated by thirteen blind participants. In Audiom, the user is an avatar that navigates, using the arrow keys, through geographic data, as if ...
  • Artefact, Participant and Interaction in Auditory Experiences 

    Seiça, Mariana; Roque, Licínio; Martins, Pedro; Cardoso, F. Amílcar (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    The act of sound perception and its subjective dimensions, from physical to psychoacoustics, from semantic to affective, carry an inherent challenge for the conception and evaluation of every audio-based artefact. Starting ...
  • Sonification of TESS data validation timeseries files 

    García Riber, Adrian; Serradilla Garcia, Francisco (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    In August 2022, the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) will start its fifth year of exploration having observed and analyze more than a million stars in the search of extrasolar planets around both celestial ...
  • 5000 Exoplanets: Listen to the Sounds of Discovery 

    Russo, Matt; Santaguida, Andrew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    In March of 2022, NASA announced the discovery of the 5000th planet orbiting a star other than our sun (an exoplanet). We have created a sonification and visualization to celebrate this milestone and to communicate the ...
  • The sonic carpet: Real-time feedback of energy consumption and emission data through sonic interaction design 

    Madaghiele, Vicenzo; Pauletto, Sandra (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    As buildings become increasingly automated and energy efficient, the relative impact of occupants on the overall building carbon footprint is expected to increase. Research shows that by changing occupant behaviour energy ...
  • Ritualistic approach to sonic interaction design: A poetic framework for participatory sonification 

    Morabito, Robin; Armitage, Jack; Magnusson, Thor (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    While sonification is often adopted as an analytical tool to understand data, it can also be an efficient basis for the construction of an interaction model for an aesthetic sound piece. Mirroring the performative arts, ...
  • Towards a workshop methodology for involving non-expert stakeholders in the interactive sound design process: Connecting household sounds and energy consumption data 

    Seznec, Yann; Pauletto, Sandra (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    Sonic interaction design and sonification have the potential to provide new ways to display and interpret data and information. Data from a number of domains have been sonified: astronomy, finance, health, security, and ...
  • Sonifying 2D Cellular Behavior Using Cellular Stehoscope 

    Ngo, Angela; Sardana, Disha; Bukvic, Ivica Ico (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    This paper presents an approach to sonifying 2D cellular data. Its primary goal is attaining listener comprehension parity between original visual data and its sonified counterpart for the purpose of understanding cell ...
  • Pre-recorded sound file versus human coach: Investigating auditory guidance effects on elite rowers 

    Herrebrøden, Henrik; Gonzalez Sanchez, Victor Evaristo; Vuoskoski, Jonna; Jensenius, Alexander Refsum (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    We report on an experiment in which nine Norwegian national team rowers (one female) were tested on a rowing ergometer in a motion capture lab. After the warm-up, all participants rowed in a neutral condition for three ...
  • AltAR/table: A Platform for Plausible Auditory Augmentation 

    Weger, Marian; Hermann, Thomas; Höldrich, Robert (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    Auditory feedback from everyday interactions can be augmented to project digital information in the physical world. For that purpose, auditory augmentation modulates irrelevant aspects of already existing sounds while at ...
  • Recommendations to Develop, Distribute, and Market Sonification Apps 

    Ziemer, Tim; Jadid, Navid Mirzayousef (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-06)
    After decades of research, sonification is still rarely adopted in consumer electronics, software and user interfaces. Outside the science and arts scenes the term sonification seems not well known to the public. As a means ...
