|Title: ||DECO 1013 Sound Design and Sonification Assignment 1. Audimotes|

|Abstract: ||Online communication has always been primarily focused on the visual. Popular methods of online communication including messengers, email, Facebook, Twitter and blogging all share a common attribute in that they are text based; with communication relying solely on written word. We have neglected one of the fundamental methods of communication. “Emotion is carried less by the linguistic meaning of a word than by the way in which the sound is communicated.” This shift toward the visual transmission of messengers has left a virtual emotional void. Much of the emotional content of communication has been achieved only through the use of acronyms and ‘emoticons,’ but this is in stark contrast to the natural ways we communicate emotion leading to confusion and ambiguity. With modern technology we have long had the ability to use sound as a medium of online communication but its potential has yet to be realized. With this in mind, my aim in this assignment was to create a medium by which we can communicate emotion virtually; through the natural medium of sound.|
