A Study of the Effects of Acoustic Phenomena and Their Possible Use in Multimedia

A thesis written for the MsC in Multimedi a systems TCD.

Doctor Gavreau


This thesis investigates the many types of acoustic phenomena and the affects they can have on people, with a view to their possible use in multimedia. In particular, it scrutinises all aspects of binaural beats, infrasound and acoustic weapons to determine the true effects they can have on people. Throughout this thesis, examples are given where multimedia has benefited from these acoustic phenomena, and it gives further suggestions for their use in both practical and artistic applications of multimedia.
