Sonification of Emotion Research to Appear in Organized Sound

Organised Sound Masters student R. Michael Winters' research on Sonification of Emotion is scheduled to appear in the April 2014 issue of Organised Sound. The paper is entitled “When the Data is Emotion: Strategies and Results from the Intersection of Sonification and Music,” and features the first ever computational design and evaluation of sonifications of emotion. He used the MIREmotion function from the MIRToolbox and specially designed two MATLAB frameworks for interactive exploration and iterative design. The paper will also appear in Chapter 4 of his manuscript based thesis, “Exploring Music through Sound: Sonification of Emotion, Gesture, and Corpora.”
