From interactive computer music systems to sonification research.

In this presentation, I will briefly outline my journey from interactive computer music systems to sonification research. While music theatre performances and installations sometimes live from over-exaggerated sounds, ambient sonifications may benefit from being calm and unobtrusive. If the auditory feedback which is emerging from interaction with our everyday acoustic environment is altered, it may exceed the range of plausibility. But what is this range? And how can we find it?

Marian Weger lives and works in Graz, where he studied Electrical Engineering / Sound Engineering at Graz University of Music and Performing Arts. Always on the border between art and technology, his artistic contributions include immersive media installations as well as interactive systems for sound design and video projection for music theatre. At the Institute for Electronic Music and Acoustics (IEM), he researches and teaches in the field of sonification, sonic interaction design, and musical acoustics. For his PhD, he is currently examining in what way everyday interaction sounds could be plausibly augmented in order to convey additional information.
