TL;DR: In this paper, the authors employ parameter-mapping sonification to study the perceptual flow of all trades in individual stock groupings over a trading day by applying various filters and selection methodologies to a detailed ‘tick’ dataset.
Abstract: The previous chapter explored the use of audification of a numerical series, each member representing the daily closing value of an entire stock market, to observe the cross-correlation (trending) within the market itself. This chapter employs parameter-mapping sonification to study the perceptual flow of all trades in individual stock groupings over a trading day by applying various filters and selection methodologies to a detailed ‘tick’ dataset. It outlines the use of a size/mass metaphorical model of market activity and the simultaneous use of two opposing conceptual paradigms without apparent conceptual contradiction or cognitive dissonance to demonstrate, given conducive conditions, the power of intention over perception and sensation, in auditory information seeking.

TL;DR: Focused listening: The Aesthetics of Parallax as discussed by the authors explores various ways in which persons in the presence of a single sound object might listen to, and thus perceive and hear, that sonic phenomenon.
Abstract: Even though Slavoj Žižek has written many words about music without really saying much about it, his work nevertheless contains much that for the philosophically minded musicologist, or for the musically minded philosopher, can stimulate thinking. For the author of this article, for example, some of the ideas presented in Žižek’s 2006 The Parallax View have stimulated thinking about the possibilities of taking a comparable approach—that is, a metaphorically ‘parallax’ approach that involves considering an object of attention alternately from more than one perspective—not just to music but to sounds in general. Along with summarizing Žižek’s views on music per se, “Focused Listening: The Aesthetics of Parallax” explores various ways in which persons in the presence of a single ‘sound object’ might listen to, and thus perceive and hear, that sonic phenomenon.
