Mapping workplace soundscapes: Reifying Office Auditory Environments (2006)
Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., Crerar, A., Benyon, D., & LePl√Ętre, G. (2006). Mapping workplace soundscapes: Reifying Office Auditory Environments. In World Forum on Acoustic Ecology Conference (334-344)

This paper reports an empirical study to investigate how individuals perceive and classify elements of their workplace auditory environments. The participants were 18 university employees chosen for their varying degrees of room occupancy, from singl... Read More about Mapping workplace soundscapes: Reifying Office Auditory Environments.

Sound and soundscape classification: Establishing key auditory dimensions and their relative importance (2006)
Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., LePl√Ętre, G., Crerar, A., & Benyon, D. (2006). Sound and soundscape classification: Establishing key auditory dimensions and their relative importance.

This paper investigates soundscape classification by using two different forms of data gathering and two different populations. The first method involves a questionnaire completed by 75 audio professionals. The second uses a speak-aloud experiment, d...

Soundfields and soundscapes: reifying auditory communities (2002)
Conference Proceeding
McGregor, I., Crerar, A., Benyon, D., & Macaulay, C. (2002). Soundfields and soundscapes: reifying auditory communities. In Proceedings of the 2002 International Conference on Auditory Display, Kyoto, Japan, July 2-5, 2002 (290-294)

This paper reports progress towards mapping workplace soundscapes. In order to design auditory interfaces that integrate effectively with workplace environments, we need a detailed understanding of the way in which end users inhabit these environment...
