Listening to Life in Motion: Understanding the Dynamic Aspects of Biological Information with Time-Series Data Sonification 3 year

Research Site Multimedia Library,Life Science Center of Tsukuba Advanced Research Alliance,University of Tsukuba,Assistant professor

Researchers Theme Outline

Human hearing can resolve layers of temporally fluctuating information more efficiently than vision. With the latest measurement and visualization techniques that capture the dynamic behaviors of living organisms, current research methods in life sciences strongly rely on vision. In this project, we transform such dynamic behaviors into sound in a perceptually meaningful manner, employing the knowledge from psychoacoustics and music psychology. We aim for a transition in biological research toward the comprehension of liveliness by exploring the dynamic aspects of life with audition.
