We describe a method to create icons from audio files in such a way that songs which the user considers similar receive similar icons. This allows visual data mining in standard(More)
The look of a non-transparent material is determined by its bidirectional reflection distribution function (BRDF). To design 3-D objects for example for games or animation films thus includes to design BRDFs. However, as functions defined on a four-dimensional domain, these form a vast space that is very difficult to explore interactively. Typically, the(More)

We propose to simplify the use of an equalizer by providing a visual arrangement of subjective terms such as 'warm', 'present', 'boomy' instead of the standard controls that closely correspond to(More)
