Towards a Live Interface for Direct Manipulation of Spatial Audio

  title={Towards a Live Interface for Direct Manipulation of Spatial Audio},
  author={Jamie Bullock and Tychonas Michailidis and Matthieu Poyade},
In this position paper we present research from the AHRC-funded project Transforming Transformation: 3D Models for Interactive Sound Design. The project entails exploration of a new interface for live audio transformation whereby sound can be manipulated through grasp as if it were an invisible 3D object. This approach contrasts with existing GUI-based systems, which primarily use 2D input and 2D visualisation. In the paper we describe the first phase of this research, which enables audio…

Integra Live: a New Graphical User Interface for Live Electronic Music
A new application, Integra Live, designed to address the problems associated with software usability in live electronic music is described, giving a rationale for key design decisions and a critical evaluation application usability is given based on user-testing processes.
Current Technologies and Compositional Practices for Spatialization: A Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis
To effectively guide future research efforts, to understand this lack of coherence in spatialization,velopment and creative musical application needs to be understood.
Nuvolet: 3D Gesture-driven Collaborative Audio Mosaicing
Nuvolet consists of a 3D motion controller coupled to a concatenative synthesis engine that allows performers to concurrently explore two or three-dimensional sound cloud representations of the units from the sound corpus, as well as to perform collaborative target-based audio mosaicing.
Directness and liveness in the morphic user interface construction environment
Four implementation techniques work together to support directness and liveness in Morphic: structuralReification, layout reification, ubiquitous animation, and live editing.
"Where Did I Put That?" - Effectiveness of Kinesthetic Memory in Immersive Virtual Environments
A user study is presented designed to explore the intensity of kinesthetic memory while interacting with a large screen immersive environment to improve the usability and effectiveness of user interfaces for such environments.
The future of interactive systems and the emergence of direct manipulation
Abstract This paper suggests three motivations for the strong interest in human factors' aspects of user interfaces and reviews five design issues: command language versus menu selection, response
Toward an articulation of interaction esthetics
By means of interaction criticism, four concepts that begin to characterize the esthetic qualities of interaction are introduced that are likely to be important in the development of interactive products and services.
The acoustic, the digital and the body: a survey on musical instruments
A survey conducted in the autumn of 2006 with the objective to understand people's relationship to their musical tools focused on the question of embodiment and its different modalities in the fields of acoustic and digital instruments.
What in the World Do We Hear? An Ecological Approach to Auditory Event Perception
Everyday listening is the experience of hearing events in the world rather than sounds per se. In this article, I take an ecological approach to everyday listening to overcome constraints on its
Fundamental Components of the Gameplay Experience: Analysing Immersion
A heuristic gameplay experience model is presented that identifies some of the key components and processes that are relevant in the experience of gameplay, with a particular focus on immersion.
