...Substituting Vision by Audition (PSVA) device assigns a specific frequency to each pixel, and encodes brightness with volume ( Arno et al . 2001 ; Capelle et al . 2002 ). More recent devices such as the Computer Aided System for Blind People (CASBliP) and the Michigan Visual Sonification System (MVSS) have used 3-D sound (encoded with head-related transfer functions) to encode the spatial location of objects ( Araque et al . 2008 ; Clemons et al . 2012 ). Despite a diverse array of sensory substitution devices, none are currently commercially available or have...

...range of rhythmic, melodic, harmonic, and dynamic-acoustical elements and research has shown it to be an effect therapeutic tool to influence both upper and lower extremity discrete, serial, and continuous movements. Experts in sports, such as professional rowers, have used musical sonification during training as feedback in order to control for the rhythmicity, the quality of the task, and assess the degree of synchrony between the different athletes ( Schaffert & Mattes, 2015 ). Neurologic Music Therapy Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) is a research based system of...

...Ormerod, & Morley, 2004 ). For example, the representational relation—spatial acoustics—between a seating arrangement in a theater and the arrangement’s function of seating a given number people is itself a solution to the problem of characterizing complex information through sound (sonification). Similarly, when a prior representation is a suitable model for the current reality, we could transfer the exact design representation in its entirety to a new context, or what is known as case-driven analogizing ( Ball et al., 2004 ). That is, we could simply assert that a Greek...
