Salient Sounds

Project Team


This project seeks to explore the use of interactive sound to enhance motion awareness and motivate human movement. It is as yet unknown the extent to which the audio-biofeedback from the perspective of sound has a capacity to inform human movement. The interrelationship between sounds texture and interactive transition can influence body movement and mindful awareness. To design and develop for these interrelationships, appropriate models of sensor data extraction and sound synthesis are needed to “feed” back the salient qualities in bi-pedal walking and standing to the person moving.


This project is at proof of concept stage to explore and examine the appropriate data extraction and sound synthesis methods to enable study on this unique movement to sound perception context.
