On 26. September 2013, I presented DEIND at Sound is Information, an open symposium arranged in conjunction with Gaël Dubus’ doctoral thesis defence.
Sound is indeed a very powerful multichannel information carrier. Church bells ringing communicate different meanings/events to people living in a neighbourhood through the day, footsteps sounds inform us about intention, gender, weight, age, and shoes of a person. These two everyday examples tell us how skilled we are in using sound for decoding information.
