IoT Sound Design Lucid Bar 2030

In this course I explored how sound can play a role in designing Systems of Smart Things through different approaches to using sound, ranging from speech to non-speech; symbolic to expressive; localized sound to sound ecologies etc. In the form of theoretical knowledge and design challenges, I explored the strengths of the auditory modality within the experience of our digital/physical environment

Design challenges

In this course various design challenges were done related to the exploration of the auditory modality to make Systems of Smart Things visible in the digital/physical world. Examples of these challenges include: the creation of an audiocumentary of the sounds you encounter in daily life and the experience around it; an auditory IoT meeting guiding system; the exploration of music theory (dissonance/consonance) in Systems of Smart Things; and the Smart Things System sound design within the Lucid Bar of 2030.
