  1. 1. Textile Sound Design

    Author : Margareta Zetterblom; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; textile design; sound effect; sound object; design; sound; Textil design; Textiles and Fashion General ; Textil och mode generell ;

    Abstract : The thesis aims at developing conceptual and methodological tools in order to adapt sound in a “designerly” way within the discipline textile design. Occupational groups working with sound are to a large extent problem driven. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sound Notation : The visual representation of sound for composition and analysis

    Author : Sköld Mattias; Roberto Bresin; Henrik Frisk; Kjetil Falkenberg; Craig Vear; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; notation; aural sonology; music analysis; electroacoustic music; computer-aided composition; Media Technology; Medieteknik;

    Abstract : This compilation thesis details steps taken to develop and evaluate a new Sound Notation system for composition, analysis, and transcription with the capacity to describe all types of sound. Ideas from electroacoustic music analysis are combined with traditional notation to form a hybrid system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sound intolerance : characteristics, psychosocial work factors and reactions to exposure

    Author : Johan Paulin; Linus Andersson; Steven Nordin; David Baguley; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Sound intolerance; hyperacusis; psychosocial work environment; Noise sensitivity scale; white noise; Ljudintolerans; hyperakusi; psykosocial arbetsmiljö; vitt brus; ljudöverkänslighet; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Sound intolerance refers to an adverse reaction to sounds at sound pressure levels most people do not find bothersome. It is sometimes associated with hearing loss and tinnitus, but neither conditions are a prerequisite for being intolerant to sounds. READ MORE

  4. 4. Textile Sound Design

    Author : Margareta Zetterblom; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; The Cresson Institute; Textile design; acoustics; phenomenography; sound environment; sound absorbing textiles; Pierre Schaeffer; phenomenology; interactive textile design; textile sound design;

    Abstract : There are a number of ways to describe the aesthetical expression of a textile, but how is it possible to express its sound affecting qualities? This thesis aims at developing conceptual and methodological tools in order to adapt sound within the textile design area. Occupational groups working with sound are to a large extent problem driven.

  5. 5. Absorption of Sound : On the effects of field interaction on absorber performance

    Author : Anna Färm; Mats Åbom; Ragnar Glav; Susann Boij; Gareth Bennett; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sound absorption; Porous absorbers; Bulk reaction; Local reaction; Boundary layer; Grazing flow; Temperature gradients; Surface impedance; Sound field; Pass-by noise; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Environmental noise has for decades been a well known problem, especially in urban areas. As noise requirements for vehicles are sharpened, noise reducing concepts are needed in early design stages requiring accurate simulations to support the design. READ MORE
