Tiivistelmä

This paper outlines the design and development process of the Dynamic Audio Motion (Dynamo) concept. The Dynamo audio engine was developed for driving dynamic sound interaction states via custom made finite state machine. Further, a generative sound design approach was employed for creating sonic and musical structures. Designed dynamic sound interactions were tested in an embodied information wall application with endusers. During the testing situation, end-users engaged in a reflective creation process providing valuable insight of their experiences of using the system. In this paper we present key questions driving the research, theoretical background, research approach, an audio engine development process, and end-user research activities. The results indicate that dynamic sound interactions supported people's personal, emotional, and creative needs in the design context.
