An overview of emerging topics, theories, methods, and practices in sonic interactive design, with a focus on the multisensory aspects of sonic experience. Sound is an integral part of every user experience but a neglected medium in design disciplines. Design of an artifact's sonic qualities is often limited to the shaping of functional, representational, and signaling roles of sound. The interdisciplinary field of sonic interaction design (SID) challenges these prevalent approaches by considering sound as an active medium that can enable novel sensory and social experiences through interactive technologies. This book offers an overview of the emerging SID research, discussing theories, methods, and practices, with a focus on the multisensory aspects of sonic experience. Sonic Interaction Design gathers contributions from scholars, artists, and designers working at the intersections of fields ranging from electronic music to cognitive science. They offer both theoretical considerations of key themes and case studies of products and systems created for such contexts as mobile music, sensorimotor learning, rehabilitation, and gaming. The goal is not only to extend the existing research and pedagogical approaches to SID but also to foster domains of practice for sound designers, architects, interaction designers, media artists, product designers, and urban planners. Taken together, the chapters provide a foundation for a still-emerging field, affording a new generation of designers a fresh perspective on interactive sound as a situated and multisensory experience.

Nowadays, human-object and human-human interactions are often facilitated by computational means. Interaction designers aim at designing such interactions to make them more effective and pleasant. Sonic Interaction Design emphasizes the role of sound as a mediator of meaningful interactions. A COST Action on Sonic Interaction Design was run between 2007 and 2011, to pro-actively contribute to the creation and consolidation of new design theories, tools, and practices in this innovative and interdisciplinary domain. The Action stood on four legs: cognitive science, design, interactive art, and information display. This book reports on many research activities that have been conducted over a four-year period, organized as workshops, training schools, short-term scientific missions, and an exhibition.Davide Rocchesso is associate professor at the IUAV University of Venice, Italy.
Annotation. This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Haptic and Audio Interaction Design, HAID 2010 held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in September 2010. The 21 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers are organized in topical sections on multimodal integration, tactile and sonic explorations, walking and navigation interfaces, prototype design and evaluation, and gestures and emotions.
This book constitutes the refereed post-conference proceedings the 6th EAI International Conference on Design, Leaning and Innovation, DLI 2021, which took place in December 2021. Due to COVID-19 pandemic the conference was held virtually. The theme for DLI 2021 was “Shifting boundaries to discover novel ways and emerging technologies to realise human needs, ideas, and desires” targeting a conceptualisation of the effects and impact of digital technologies for, in an inclusive and playful way, fostering human beings to realising their needs, ideas and desires. The 17 revised full papers presented were carefully selected from 36 submissions and are organized in four thematic sessions on: digital technologies, design and learning; tools and models; artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality in learning; innovative designs and learning.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on Computer Music Modeling and Retrieval, CMMR 2013, held in Marseille, France, in October 2013. The 38 conference papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 94 submissions. The chapters reflect the interdisciplinary nature of this conference with following topics: augmented musical instruments and gesture recognition, music and emotions: representation, recognition, and audience/performers studies, the art of sonification, when auditory cues shape human sensorimotor performance, music and sound data mining, interactive sound synthesis, non-stationarity, dynamics and mathematical modeling, image-sound interaction, auditory perception and cognitive inspiration, and modeling of sound and music computational musicology.
This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to foundational topics in sound design for embedded media, such as physical computing; interaction design; auditory displays and data sonification; speech synthesis; wearables; smart objects and instruments; user experience; toys and playful tangible objects; and the new sensibilities entailed in expanding the concept of sound design to encompass the totality of our surroundings. The reader will gain a broad understanding of the key concepts and practices that define sound design for its use in computational products and design. The chapters are written by international authors from diverse backgrounds who provide multidisciplinary perspectives on sound in its many embedded forms. The volume is designed as a textbook for students and teachers, as a handbook for researchers in sound, programming and design, and as a survey of key trends and ideas for practitioners interested in exploring the boundaries of their profession.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Design, User Experience, and Usability, DUXU 2020, held as part of the 22nd International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCII 2020, in Copenhagen, Denmark, in July 2020. The conference was held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From a total of 6326 submissions, a total of 1439 papers and 238 posters has been accepted for publication in the HCII 2020 proceedings. The 40 papers included in this volume were organized in topical sections on UX design methods, tools and guidelines, interaction design and information visualization, and emotional design.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference proceedings of the 6th International Symposium on Computer Music Modeling and Retrieval, CMMR 2009, held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in May 2009. The 25 revised full papers presented were specially reviewed and corrected for this proceedings volume. The conference's topics include auditory exploration of data via sonification and audification; real time monitoring of multivariate date; sound in immersive interfaces and teleoperation; perceptual issues in auditory display; sound in generalized computer interfaces; technologies supporting auditory display creation; data handling for auditory display systems; applications of auditory display.
What does it mean to interact with sound? How does interactivity alter our experience as creators and listeners? What does the future hold for interactive musical and sonic experiences? This book answers these questions with newly-commissioned chapters that explore the full range of interactive audio in games, performance, design, and practice.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-conference of the 12th International Symposium on Computer Music Modeling and Retrieval, CMMR 2016, held in São Paulo, Brazil, in July 2016. The 22 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 40 submissions. This year’s conference theme “Bridging People and Sound” aimed at encouraging contributions from artists and listeners on the one side and audio and music technology researchers on the other.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment (INTETAIN 11). The 20 full papers, 3 posters, 10 demos and 4 workshops presented were carefully selected from numerous submissions. The conference aims enhancing the understanding of recent and anticipated advances in interactive technologies, and their applications to entertainment, education, culture, and the arts. Interaction technologies are having relevant changes in the last years, and will influence the way users consume and interact with the media and applications, both locally and over the Internet. The explosion of natural, multimodal, and touch based interfaces, and their access to the general public, has made new interaction paradigms a reality.
