Monitoring Real-Time Data Streams: A Sonification Approach
International Conference on Auditory Display, Queen Mary, UK, 2006
This paper describes an approach to sonifying and displaying remotely sensed data. A representative sample dataset was audified using synthetic sounds, and sonified using orchestral instruments. The resulting 14 data streams were streamed in real-time and rendered using 3 display methods. Audio spatialization using HRTF processing is compared with stereo and monophonic display. Listening tests show a marked preference for the sonified data processed using HRTFs.
