|Title: ||Sonification of Real-Time Physiological Data for Meditation Practice|
|Authors: ||Ghanavi, Reza|
|Issue Date: ||26-Nov-2018|
|Abstract: ||Translating biophysical data to meaningful audible pieces has been under investigation in plants,
animals and humans . For example, the electrical signal resulting from changing the galvanic
response of human skin (GSR)  by a physical or emotional stimulus can be used for mapping
the parameters of a musical piece . In a similar manner, the temperature change created by the
human breath can be translated to audible signals.
On this basis a scenario has been developed for a real-time sonification of breathing patterns and
GSR data to create an audible reflection of the unconscious mind. This instrument can be a
practical device to enhance the power of self-control in meditation practice as mapping the user’s
psychophysical signals to musical notes can be a powerful way to control stress by enhancing
mindfulness about internal layers of psychological patterns .|
