Meshodology of Sonification Design, Germany


A method can provide creative inspiration and theoretical guidance or the designer faced with a blank slate and wide open space of possibilities.

This method for designing sonifications has threads drawn from user-centred design, sound art, film sound, semiotics, perceptual psychology and auditory scene analysis. This mesh of methods addresses  affective, schema and perceptual aspects of sonic experience.

Its a meshodology :)

The Sonification Design Meshodology was presented at the Aural City Symposium in Berlin on Saturday 9 May 2009. This site provides video and audio recordings on the Hearings on
