are sonifications of human gait created for a final project in me281,
Biomechanics of Movement. The sonification technique was created
by Luke Dahl and Jason Sadural, with data and consultation provided by
(This web page is
a quick and dirty way to get these up online! Once the quarter is
finished I'll make this page much more informative, and convert these
to youtube videos!! -LD)
- Running, quads and gluts: This is a sonification of the muscle activations of gluteaus maximus and the quadreceps.
Can you tell how many maxima each has during a gait cycle?
Which fires first? Which turns off first? Could you
tell these with the sound off just by viewing muscle activation?
- Running, slow motion, quads and gluts: Here's the same thing but at a slower speed.
- Running, quads -> gluts -> plantar flexors -> hams: Four
muscle groups are sonified, gluteus maximus, quadreceps, ankle plantar
flexors, and hamstrings. They come in one at a time so you can
hear each one.
- Walking, all four muscle groups:
Here's the same sonification but applied to walking instead of running
(at the exact same speed so you can compare and listen for differences.
