Putting the player in the picture; biofeedback and embodied affect (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Palmer (nee Reiser), M., & Palmer, M. (2017, November). Putting the player in the picture; biofeedback and embodied affect. Paper presented at Sounding Out the Space

The problem faced by those developing games, whether for entertainment or educational purposes, is how to create engaging and inclusive forms of participation. Interaction is a two-way process and whilst there are many ways of feeding information abo... Read More about Putting the player in the picture; biofeedback and embodied affect.

Revisiting site-related sonic practices (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Palmer (nee Reiser), M. (2017, November). Revisiting site-related sonic practices. Paper presented at Sounding Out the Space

Aims of site-related sonic practices are often opposed to those within mainstream sound production. This paper argues that whilst largely living within places of constructed spatial/sonic homogeneity, site-related sonic practices are culturally impor...

Further towards sonifications of elemental ecological systems/relationships: Salt marsh ecology experiments in temporal immersion and exchange (2015)
Presentation / Conference
Palmer (nee Reiser), M., & Jones, O. (2015, September). Further towards sonifications of elemental ecological systems/relationships: Salt marsh ecology experiments in temporal immersion and exchange. Paper presented at RGS-IBG Annual International Conference

In this paper we seek to further develop the concept/methodology of data sonification (see Palmer and Jones 2014) as an experimental aesthetic, geo-poetic, and techno-scientific creative procedure for making explicit the generative processuality of e...

On breathing and geography: Explorations of data sonifications of timespace processes with illustrating examples from a tidally dynamic landscape (Severn Estuary, UK) (2014)
Journal Article
Palmer, M., & Jones, O. (2014). On breathing and geography: Explorations of data sonifications of timespace processes with illustrating examples from a tidally dynamic landscape (Severn Estuary, UK). Environment and Planning A, 46(1), 222-240. https://doi.org/10.1068/a45264

This paper consists of a discussion of data sonification-a procedure in which information gathered from systems such as bodies or environmental processes is analyzed and reprocessed into audio models, so aspects of the process generating the data (fo...

The whole world a creativity kit (2013)
Presentation / Conference
Palmer (nee Reiser), M. (2013, April). The whole world a creativity kit. Paper presented at CAS/CADE 2013 'Codes of Engagement' conference

This paper revisits code-based computing practices in art and design education. The case often made for such practices is that they allow non-experts to shape what surrounds them, leading to a greater sense of emotional involvement, empowerment and c...

On breathing and geography: Sonifying the Severn as shared generative art practice (2011)
Presentation / Conference
Palmer (nee Reiser), M. (2011, September). On breathing and geography: Sonifying the Severn as shared generative art practice. Paper presented at ISEA2011 Istanbul, The 17th International Symposium on Electronic Art

The paper investigates environmental data sonification as a method, and examines the compromises between quantifying and qualifying data in order to aid listeners’ interpretation of sounds. Based on this it discusses different kinds of ‘accuracies’... Read More about On breathing and geography: Sonifying the Severn as shared generative art practice.
