The alchemy of chaos: A sound art sonification of a year of Tourette’s episodes (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Mitchell, T. J., Thom, J., Pountney, M., & Hyde, J. (2019, June). The alchemy of chaos: A sound art sonification of a year of Tourette’s episodes. Paper presented at The 25th International Conference on Auditory Display (ICAD 2019)

Touretteshero is the name of a organisation that aims to raise awareness of Tourette's syndrome by sharing and celebrating the creativity and humor of the involuntary vocal and movement tics that characterise the condition. This paper documents the d... Read More about The alchemy of chaos: A sound art sonification of a year of Tourette’s episodes.

Interactive molecular dynamics in virtual reality from quantum chemistry to drug binding: An open-source multi-person framework (2019)
Journal Article
O’Connor, M., Bennie, S. J., Deeks, H. M., Jamieson-Binnie, A., Jones, A. J., Shannon, R. J., …Glowacki, D. R. (2019). Interactive molecular dynamics in virtual reality from quantum chemistry to drug binding: An open-source multi-person framework. Journal of Chemical Physics, 150(22), https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5092590

As molecular scientists have made progress in their ability to engineer nano-scale molecular structure, we are facing new challenges in our ability to engineer molecular dynamics (MD) and flexibility. Dynamics at the molecular scale differs from the... Read More about Interactive molecular dynamics in virtual reality from quantum chemistry to drug binding: An open-source multi-person framework.

OpenCL vs: Accelerated finite-difference digital synthesis (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Renney, H., Gaster, B. R., & Mitchell, T. (2019). OpenCL vs: Accelerated finite-difference digital synthesis. https://doi.org/10.1145/3318170.3318172

Digital audio synthesis has become an important component of modern music production with techniques that can produce realistic simulations of real instruments. Physical modelling sound synthesis is a category of audio synthesis that uses mathematica... Read More about OpenCL vs: Accelerated finite-difference digital synthesis.

Return to temperament (In digital systems) (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Renney, N., Gaster, B., & Mitchell, T. (2018, September). Return to temperament (In digital systems). Paper presented at Audio Mostly

Considering the generation of musical tunings, it is reasonable to expect that the many constructs contained in Functional programming languages may provide useful tools for exploring both conventional and new tunings. In this paper we present a numb... Read More about Return to temperament (In digital systems).

Simple mappings, expressive movement: A qualitative investigation into the end-user mapping design of experienced mid-air musicians (2018)
Journal Article
Brown, D., Nash, C., & Mitchell, T. (2018). Simple mappings, expressive movement: A qualitative investigation into the end-user mapping design of experienced mid-air musicians. Digital Creativity, 29(2-3), 129-148. https://doi.org/10.1080/14626268.2018.1510841

In a New Interface for Musical Expression (NIME), the design of the relationship between a musician’s actions and the instrument’s sound response is critical in creating instruments that facilitate expressive music performance. A growing body of NIME... Read More about Simple mappings, expressive movement: A qualitative investigation into the end-user mapping design of experienced mid-air musicians.

Understanding user-defined mapping design in mid-air musical performance (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Brown, D., Nash, C., & Mitchell, T. (2018, June). Understanding user-defined mapping design in mid-air musical performance. Paper presented at 5th International Conference on Movement Computing (MOCO 2018)

Modern gestural interaction and motion capture technology is frequently incorporated into Digital Musical Instruments (DMIs) to enable new methods of musical expression. A major topic of interest in this domain concerns how a performer's actions are... Read More about Understanding user-defined mapping design in mid-air musical performance.

Sonifying stochastic walks on biomolecular energy landscapes (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Arbon, R. E., Jones, A. J., Bratholm, L. A., Mitchell, T., & Glowacki, D. R. (2018, June). Sonifying stochastic walks on biomolecular energy landscapes. Paper presented at International Conference On Auditory Display 2018

Translating the complex, multi-dimensional data produced by simulations of biomolecules into an intelligible form is a major challenge in computational chemistry and biology. The so-called “free energy landscape” is amongst the most fundamental conce... Read More about Sonifying stochastic walks on biomolecular energy landscapes.

A cognitive dimensions approach for the design of an interactive generative score editor (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Hunt, S., Mitchell, T., & Nash, C. (2018, May). A cognitive dimensions approach for the design of an interactive generative score editor. Paper presented at Fourth International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation

This paper describes how the Cognitive Dimensions of Notation can guide the design of algorithmic composition tools. Prior research has also used the cognitive dimensions for analysing interaction design for algorithmic composition software. This wor...
