Article
Full-text available
One particular approach in the context of Animal Computer Interaction (ACI) is auditory enrichment for captive wild animals. Here we describe our research and the methodology used to design musical instruments and interfaces aimed at providing auditory enrichment for grey parrots living in captivity. The paper is divided into three main phases: a p...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This is a report of three ZooJams that have taken place at the annual Animal-Computer Interaction conference. The ZooJam is a type of workshop whose aim is to extend the reach of UX design beyond human experience in order to become inclusive of other species and their interactions with technology. Our attempts have knitted together colleagues from...
Conference Paper

Sound Shifting is an artistic research project that focuses on the physical representation of sound - this means the visualization and materialization of invisible phenomena that significantly shape our perception. We present a system that allows the transformation from sound into form in real-time by using a newly developed machine, the Audio Foam...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This workshop is designed to offer participants an opportunity to explore different kinds of auditory enrichment for a range of animals in different environments. Teams of participants will work together on a small set of briefs provided by domain experts, brainstorming ideas and developing concepts into well-designed blueprints for prototype devic...
Article
Full-text available
The use of musical instruments and interfaces that involve animals in the interaction process is an emerging, yet not widespread practice. The projects that have been implemented in this unusual field are raising questions concerning ethical principles, animal-centered design processes, and the possible benefits and risks for the animals involved....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This report documents a series of experiments towards the development of acoustically enriched environments through sonic interfaces and musical instruments for grey parrots living in captivity. These investigations intend to lead to a better understanding of how grey parrots perceive, respond to, and generate sound and music through the usage of t...
Article

This paper proposes a new type of interactive sound instrument for use with audiences in sound installations and musical performances. The Interactive Infrasonic Environment allows users to perceive and experiment with the vibration and acoustic energy produced by infrasound. This article begins with a brief overview of infrasound and examines its...
