Conference Proceeding
Quinton, M., McGregor, I., & Benyon, D. (2018)
Investigating Effective Methods of Designing Sonifications. In Proceedings of the 24th International Conference on Auditory Display - ICAD 2018https://doi.org/10.21785/icad2018.011
This study aims to provide an insight into effective sonification design. There are currently no standardized design methods, allowing a creative development approach. Sonifca...

Sonifying the solar system

Conference Proceeding
Quinton, M., McGregor, I., & Benyon, D. (2016)
Sonifying the solar system. In The 22nd International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD-2016), (28-35
Sound is potentially an effective way of analysing data and it is possible to simultaneously interpret layers of sounds and identify changes. Multiple attempts to use sound wi...

Using participatory visualisation of soundscapes to compare designers’ and listeners’ experiences of sound designs

Journal Article
McGregor, I., Turner, P., & Benyon, D. (2014)
Using participatory visualisation of soundscapes to compare designers’ and listeners’ experiences of sound designs. Journal of Sonic Studies, 6(1),
There are numerous rules and well-established guidelines to help designers with the visual appearance of interactive technologies. In contrast, when it comes to the use of sou...

Visualising the soundfield and soundscape: extending Macaulay and Crerar’s 1998 method

Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., Crerar, A., Benyon, D., & LePlâtre, G. (2008)
Visualising the soundfield and soundscape: extending Macaulay and Crerar’s 1998 method. In Proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Auditory Display
The introduction of effective auditory warnings into a shared environment requires a prior understanding of the existing soundfield and soundscape. Reifying the physical and p...

Establishing key dimensions for reifying soundfields and soundscapes from auditory professionals.

Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., Crerar, A., Benyon, D., & LePlâtre, G. (2007)
Establishing key dimensions for reifying soundfields and soundscapes from auditory professionals. In Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Auditory Display (364-371
This paper presents a unique insight into the way acousticians, computing specialists and sound designers describe the dimensions of sound they use. Seventy-five audio profess...

Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., Crerar, A., Benyon, D., & LePlâtre, G. (2006)
Workplace soundscape mapping: a trial of Macaulay and Crerar’s method. In Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD2006)
This paper describes a trial of Macaulay and Crerar’s method of mapping a workplace soundscape to assess its fitness as a basis for an extended soundscape mapping method. Twel...

Sound and soundscape classification: Establishing key auditory dimensions and their relative importance

Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., LePlâtre, G., Crerar, A., & Benyon, D. (2006)
Sound and soundscape classification: Establishing key auditory dimensions and their relative importance
