Re: Criteria for sound design in web applications

Dear Philipp, 

Scott Lipscomb has done some related work in this area in film (see
references below). I would also argue that this topic does fit quite well
within the realm of auditory display.  Stephen Brewster has presented A/V
work in this area at recent auditory display meetings (ICAD).  The
proceedings are online at www.icad.org.

film music.  Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 101(5, ii), p.

alignment in film and animation.  In D. Wessel's (Ed.) Proceedings of the
Conference of the Society for Music Perception and Cognition, 35.
