TEI 2022

February 13-16, 2022

I presented at the Graduate Student Consortium at TEI this year, discussing my PhD work with others nearing the end of their theses. My GSC paper, Examining Embodied Sensation and Perception in Singing, describes the studies I have been working on and my final collaboration with other singers using sonified sEMG to interact with their voices/bodies in new ways. The paper is now listed in the ACM Digital Library and can be found here. If you’re interested, I recorded a version of the presentation I gave at the GSC, which can be found here. 🙂

I also got a chance to participate in an excellent workshop, How Tangible is TEI, charting out the future of physical publication formats at TEI. My colleagues and I at senSInt submitted some mock physical swatches; I worked on one called the Vibro-Touch, an idea for a portable, adaptable method of experiencing tactile feedback designs. At the workshop, I collaborated with a group of other researchers in material design, haptic and audio feedback, and other multimodal research topics to discuss how we can get physical materials in the hands of other researchers. This can help with prototyping, designing new systems, and generally sharing better knowledge. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with the group in the coming months to hopefully propose some new ideas for physical publications!
