TL;DR: A new definition for sonification and auditory display is introduced that emphasizes the necessary and sufficient conditions for organized sound to be called sonification, and suggests a taxonomy, and discusses the relation between visualization and sonification.
Abstract: Sonification is still a relatively young research field and many terms such as sonification, auditory display, auralization, audification have been used without a precise definition. Recent developments such as the introduction of Model-Based Sonification, the establishment of interactive sonification and the increased interest in sonification from arts have raised the need to revisit the definitions in order to move towards a clearer terminology. This paper introduces a new definition for sonification and auditory display that emphasizes the necessary and sufficient conditions for organized sound to be called sonification. It furthermore suggests a taxonomy, and discusses the relation between visualization and sonification. A hierarchy of closed-loop interactions is furthermore introduced. This paper aims to initiate vivid discussion towards the establishment of a deeper theory of sonification and auditory display.

TL;DR: Evidence that listeners adapt to the reverberation in a room is reviewed, showing that reverberation degrades perception of source direction, but with experience in a given room, performance improves.
Abstract: Reverberation has both beneficial and detrimental effects on auditory localization. This paper reviews evidence that listeners adapt to the reverberation in a room. Results show that reverberation degrades perception of source direction, but with experience in a given room, performance improves. Reverberation enhances distance perception but distance accuracy still improves with experience. (The importance of reverberation for distance perception can be heard in the accompanying demonstration.) These results are considered along with results from previous studies investigating how past experience affects spatial perception. Implications for learning mechanisms and for the design of auditory displays are discussed.

TL;DR: Three sonifications are presented within this paper: spectral mapping sonification, which offers a quite direct inspection of the recorded data, distance matrix sonification which allows to detect nonlinear long range correlations at high time resolution, and differential sonificationWhich summarizes the comparison of EEG measurements under different conditions for each subject.
Abstract: This paper presents techniques to render acoustic representations for EEG data. In our case, data are obtained from psycholinguistic experiments where subjects are exposed to three different conditions based on different auditory stimuli. The goal of this research is to uncover elements of neural processing correlated with high-level cognitive activity. Three sonifications are presented within this paper: spectral mapping sonification which offers a quite direct inspection of the recorded data, distance matrix sonification which allows to detect nonlinear long range correlations at high time resolution, and differential sonification which summarizes the comparison of EEG measurements under different conditions for each subject. This paper describes the techniques and presents sonification examples for experimental data.

TL;DR: The importance of interaction in sonification is reviewed, how a certain quality of interaction is required is described, examples of the techniques being applied interactively are provided, and a plan of future work is outlined to develop interaction techniques to aid sonification.
Abstract: This paper argues for a special focus on the use of dynamic human interaction to explore datasets while they are being transformed into sound. We describe why this is a special case of both human computer interaction (HCI) techniques and sonification methods. Humans are adapted for interacting with their physical environment and making continuous use of all their senses. When this exploratory interaction is applied to a dataset (by continuously controlling its transformation into sound) new insights are gained into the data’s macro and micro-structure, which are not obvious in a visual rendering. This paper reviews the importance of interaction in sonification, describes how a certain quality of interaction is required, provides examples of the techniques being applied interactively, and outlines a plan of future work to develop interaction techniques to aid sonification.
