Audiotactile Interaction and Music, Ercan Altinsoy.  In our daily life, sound is usually produced by the vibrations of a body. These vibrations in our natural environment lead to both auditory and tactile perceptions. In many situations, such as playing a guitar, driving a car, drilling a hole, etc., we are exposed to sound and vibration simultaneously. Perception is a multisensory phenomenon and one major capability of our perceptual system is the integration of the multisensory stimuli which are generated by a multimodal event. Dependencies in multisensory stimuli, which result from the physical processes that generate the stimuli are important hints for our brain.

The interest in audiotactile interaction research regarding  the music increases due to increasing usage of multimodal interfaces. The aim of this talk is to show the link between fundamental research on audiotactile interaction and real-world applications with the help of different research studies:

•         Effect of loudness on the haptic force-feedback perception in virtual environments
•         The influence of whole-body vibrations on loudness perception
•         Vibratory and acoustical factors in multimodal reproduction of concert dvds
•         Audio-driven tactile feedback for audio mixing applications


Ercan Altinsoy studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Istanbul. He completed his Ph.D. thesis: "Auditory-Tactile Interaction in Virtual Environments" at the Institute of Communication Acoustics (Prof. Blauert), Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He obtained a research scholarship within the International Graduate School for Neuroscience at the Ruhr-University Bochum. After his Ph.D., Ercan Altinsoy worked at HEAD acoustics as Acoustic Consulting Engineer. In 2006, he started Lecturing at the Dresden University of Technology, Chair of Communication Acoustics as Ass. Prof.
