Authoring augmented soundscapes with user-contributed content

By Jordi Janer, Gerard Roma and Stefan Kersten


Augmented reality audio is an area still not sufficiently explored. In this article we address the creation of soundscapes to augment the acoustic information in a physical location. In particular, we focus on authoring tools that make use of user-contributed content. To facilitate the authoring process, our tool integrates the access to, an online repository with more than 120,000 sounds under a Creative Commons license. The sound search combines the traditional text-query with content-based audio classification. The automatic classification allows searching according to a taxonomy of environmental sounds (e.g. drip, impact, wind, etc.). Finally, we implemented a complete augmented soundscapes system that, in an autonomous and continuous manner, spatializes virtual acoustic sources in a geographic location.
