Soundscape Generation for Virtual Environments using Community-Provided Audio Databases

  title={Soundscape Generation for Virtual Environments using Community-Provided Audio Databases},
  author={Nathaniel Finney and Jordi Janer},
This research focuses on the generation of soundscapes using unstructured sound databases for the sonification of virtual environments. The design methodology incorporates the use of concatenative synthesis to construct a sound environment using online community-provided sonic material, and an application of this methodology is described in which sound environments are generated for Google Street View using the online sound database Freesound. Furthermore, the model allows for the creation of… CONTINUE READING
