  1. 1. Before Sound: Transversal Processes in Site-Specific Sonic Practice

    Author : Åsa Stjerna; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : sound installation; site specific; site specificity; sound art; artistic research; philosophy of immanence; assemblage; affect; ethics; public space; transversality; transversal; Gilles Deleuze; Félix Guattari; sonification; sound design; sonic practice; transformation;

    Abstract : This doctoral research explores the capacity of site-specific practices of sound installation to bring about transformation. It claims that in order to understand this capacity, we need to address the complexity of the transversal processes that make up artistic practices in this field, and understand that these transversal processes in fact precede sound.

  2. 2. Towards measuring quantum sound

    Author : Maria Ekström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surface acoustic wave; interdigital transducer; artificial atom; qubit; superconducting circuits; cryogenic temperature; phonon; gigahertz frequency; quantum acoustics; unidirectional transducer;

    Abstract : One of the most fundamental phenomena occurring in nature is the interaction between single atoms and electromagnetic fields. This is studied in quantum optics to probe the quantum nature of the system. In appended Paper I, we demonstrated that an artificial atom can couple to propagating sound, which is the acoustic analogue of quantum optics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sound for Multisensory Motion Simulators

    Author : Alexander Väljamäe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; auditory scene synthesis; spatial audio; presence; virtual reality; cognitive acoustics; illusory self-motion; vection ; multisensory optimization;

    Abstract : Interaction in a virtual reality environment often implies situations of illusory self-motion, like, for example, in flight or driving scenarios. Striving for pictorial realism, currently available motion simulators often exhibit relatively poor sound design. READ MORE

  4. 4. Atmospheric and geological entanglements : north american ecopoetry and the anthropocene

    Author : Nuno Marques; Maria Lindgren Leavenworth; Daniel Andersson; Jonathan Skinner; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Ecopoetry; ecopoetics; North American ecopoetry; form in poetry; lament; mourning; song; sound; atmosphere; air; geology; Anthropocene; entanglements; community-making; environmental justice; environmental humanities; ecocriticism; new materialisms.; Literature; litteraturvetenskap;

    Abstract : Atmospheric and Geological Entanglements is a study of contemporary North American ecopoetry, a poetry which is characterized by a negotiation or subversion of established cultural representations of nature, and by a re-deployment of poetic forms such as lyrical poetry, pastoral and elegy. The studied poets experiment with form and question well-established categories such as human and nature, instead emphasizing connections between the human, other organisms, and inorganic matter.

  5. 5. Tracking the Wanders of Nature

    Author : Clas Veibäck; Gustaf Hendeby; Fredrik Gustafsson; Hans Driessen; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Target Tracking; Sensor Fusion; Motion Models; Animals; Cameras; Radar;

    Abstract : Target tracking is a mature topic with over half a century of mainly military and aviation research. The field has lately expanded into a range of civilian applications due to the development of cheap sensors and improved computational power. READ MORE
