[ISEA2016] Paper: Eric Powell & Matthew Griffin — Hearing Blind as a New Interface for Exploring the Urban Soundscape

Abstract (short paper)

Using the smartphone-based application Hearing Blind as a case study, this paper explores ways in which listeners can explore sound-based archives and mapped constructs in a physically-present and dynamic way. This move toward a geolocated data presentation interface represents a dynamic shift in how curators, artists, and the general public can engage with the intangible cultural heritage of the constantly evolving sound environment. This paper puts forward a series of recommendations surrounding the use of new media technologies in the appreciation and understanding of documenting the ephemeral experience of the everyday soundscape.  electricityismagic.com
