  1. 1. Textile Sound Design

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

    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 intolerance : characteristics, psychosocial work factors and reactions to exposure

    Author : Johan Paulin; Linus Andersson; Steven Nordin; David Baguley; Umeå universitet; []

    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

  3. 3. Textile Sound Design

    Author : Margareta Zetterblom; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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.

  4. 4. 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 : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; 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; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    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

  5. 5. Wearing Sound : Foundations of Sonic Design

    Author : Vidmina Stasiulyte; Clemens Thornquist; Daniëlle Bruggeman; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Textiles and Fashion Design ; Textil och mode konstnärlig ;

    Abstract : Fashion is primarily a visual ontology consisting of definitions, theory and methods that are based on visual language. This research revises fashion by approaching it from a different—sonic—perspective wherein sound is considered not as a negative aspect but as a potential source of a new theory and facilitator of the evolution of new methods.
