Interactive Narration within Audio Augmented Realities

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5915)


A test installation at IEM Graz realized in the framework of the European Project “Sonic Interaction Design” serves as example to the given issue: transforming a linear novel scene in an interactive sound installation and making it explorable through embodied experience by the use of spatial sound and three-dimensional tracking. Theoretical reflections rely on drama management and perception whilst practical aspects are linked to interfaces and virtual reality.
