    Physically Motivated Environmental Sound Synthesis for Virtual Worlds

    A system is described for simulating environmental sound in interactive virtual worlds, using the physical state of objects as control parameters. It contains a unified framework for integration with physics s...

    Ecological Acoustics Perspective for Content-Based Retrieval of Environmental Sounds

    In this paper we present a method to search for environmental sounds in large unstructured databases of user-submitted audio, using a general sound events taxonomy from ecological acoustics. We discuss the use...

    An Ontological Framework for Retrieving Environmental Sounds Using Semantics and Acoustic Content

    Organizing a database of user-contributed environmental sound recordings allows sound files to be linked not only by the semantic tags and labels applied to them, but also to other sounds with similar acoustic...

    Comparisons of Auditory Impressions and Auditory Imagery Associated with Onomatopoeic Representation for Environmental Sounds

    Humans represent sounds to others and receive information about sounds from others using onomatopoeia. Such representation is useful for obtaining and reporting the acoustic features and impressions of actual ...
