Zhao, Shuyang, Hachisu, Taku, Ishii, Asuka, Kuniyasu, Yuki and Kajimoto, Hiroyuki (2012): Augmentation of obstacle sensation by enhancing low frequency component for horror game background sound.

Computer games provide users with a mental stimulation that the real world cannot. Especially, horror games are a popular category. Current horror games can provide the user with a visible ghost and the stereo background sound to thrill the user. Inspired by obstacle sense -- the ability of blind people localizing themselves only with hearing, a novel method to augment the sense of existence in the game background sound is proposed in this paper. We found that an effective sense can be created by decreasing high frequency component and increasing low frequency component simultaneously.

In: Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology 2010. pp. 415-416. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1866218.1866248

Recent development in sound technologies has enabled the realistic replay of real-life sounds. Thanks to these technologies, we can experience a virtual real sound environment. However, there are other types of sound technologies that enhance reality, such as acoustic filters, sound effects, and background music. They are quite effective if carefully prepared, but they also alter the sound itself. Consequently, sound is simultaneously used to reconstruct realistic environments and to enhance emotions, which are actually incompatible functions. With this background, we focused on using tactile modality to enhance emotions and propose a method that enhances the sound experience by a combination of sound and skin sensation to the pinna (earlobe). In this paper, we evaluate the effectiveness of this method.
