Interactive sonification has vast untapped potential in augmented feedback and sensory substitution applications. In this seminar, I will be going over my research on auditory guidance and motor feedback with an emphasis on musical sonification. After a brief overview of the psychoacoustic and cognitive mechanisms involved, I will showcase various real-time sonification approaches for balance, gait, and sit-to-stand training, insights into embodied mapping design and technical implementation along with audiovisual examples, and findings from my experimental studies on 1-D and 2-D auditory guidance. Several aspects of movement sonification design will be covered, as well as the relevant scientific challenges, design tradeoffs, and aesthetic considerations.
