Listeners often overestimate the acoustic intensity change of rising compared to equivalent falling intensity tones. The explanation that has been proposed for this effect has centered on the importance of a rising intensity signal in a natural environment. From the perspective of auditory display, this perceptual asymmetry makes acoustic intensity a poor variable choice for the purpose of sonifying dynamic changes in data. However, the salient nature of a rising intensity signal may make it… CONTINUE READING
