SR P1 och P2 Mitt i Musiken: KTH-forskare vill ha ett mer aktivt musiklyssnande   
Roberto Bresin, Gaël Dubus och Marco Fabiani intervjuades i P1 och P2 Mitt i Musiken.
"På KTH i Stockholm håller ett gäng forskare på att utveckla framtidens musikprogram till mobiltelefonen, och deras mål är att göra lyssnaren mer aktiv i lyssnandet. Att man ska kunna styra själva utförandet. Syftet med forskningen är att få en bättre förståelse för hur vi människor kommunicerar med musik. Roberto Bresin är docent på KTH:s avdelning för Tal, musik och hörsel."

3rd International Workshop on Interactive Sonification, KTH, Stockholm, April 7, 2010   

The ISon 2010 meeting is the 3rd International workshop on Interactive Sonification, following the initial ISon 2004 workshop held in Bielefeld and the previous ISon 2007 workshop in York.

The meeting offers the chance:

  • to meet experts in sonification
  • to present and demonstrate your own research
  • to strengthen your european networking in sonification research
  • to learn about new exciting trends

Additional goals of the meeting are:

  • to relate research on the topic of gestural control of auditory displays to interactive sonification
  • to survey the requirements for building Interactive Sonification systems
  • to establish a network of interested researchers in the field and exchange experiences

High quality will be assured by a peer-reviewing process, and besides a web publication we might decide to transform the proceedings into a special journal issue, as in the 1st ISon meeting, see IEEE Multimedia Special Issue on Interactive Sonification.
