SNSF Spark project "Sonic Imagination" – Excerpts of recorded evaluation interviews

Zeller, Ludwig; Rumori, Martin

We aimed to investigate the hypothesis that virtual sound sources in audio augmented environments are particularly suitable for triggering and directing imaginations within human inner perception. Our hypothesis was that the binaural listening to imaginary entities at the place of recording (so to speak 'in-situ') enhances the imagination in a special way, since sound as a non-visual medium favours the creation of images in human inner perception. We narrowed down our research question especially in regards to our practical experimentations to possible applications in areas that rely on the guided creation of individual or intersubjective imaginations, such as urban planning and scenario development, certain forms of trauma therapy, as well as audiovisual art and fiction.
