Project Presentation: Closing the Loop of Sound Evaluation and Design (CLOSED)

This video was recorded at NIPS Workshop on Music, Brain and Cognition, Whistler 2007 . Objectives: Despite being a promising and lively playground, sound design is not a solid discipline yet. We believe that the reason is to be found in the lack of design-oriented measurement and evaluation tools. The CLOSED project aims at providing a functional-aesthetic sound measurement tool that can be profitably used by designers. At one end, this tool will be linked with physical attributes of sound-enhanced everyday objects; at the other end it will relate to user emotional response. The measurement tool will be made of a set of easy-to-interpret indicators, which will be related to use in natural context, and it will be integrated in the product design process to facilitate the control of sonic aspects of objects, functionalities, and services encountered in everyday settings. The aim of the CLOSED project is to provide such concepts and tools, toward closing the loop of sound evaluation and design. more on http://closed.ircam.fr/
