LIVEJACET

There are two conventional methods to experience music: listening physically (Live) and listening through digital media. However, there are differences in the quality of the music experience between these listening methods. To improve the quality of music experience and entertainment when listening through digital media, we developed LIVEJACKET, a jacket capable of vibrotactile presentation and music playback. By simultaneously presenting vibration and sound from 22 multiple speakers attached to a jacket, we created the sensation of being enveloped in sound. Wearers feel like they are singing, which can improve the quality of the music experience. We set music listening methods, completed experiments, and conducted a questionnaire survey on the music experience. Based on the results, we found that the system we proposed can provide a music experience that cannot be obtained by listening to music through traditional digital methods.

音楽を体験するには,物理的に聴く方法(ライブ)と,デジタルメディアを通して聴く方法がある.しかし,これらのリスニング方法の間には,音楽体験の質の違いがある.デジタルメディアで音楽を聴くときの音楽体験とエンターテイメントの質を向上させるために,振動触覚の提示と音楽再生が可能なジャケット,LIVEJACKETを開発した.ジャケットに取り付けた22個のスピーカーから振動と音を同時に出すことで,音に包まれる感覚を生み出した.装着者は歌を歌っているように感じ,音楽体験の質を向上させることができる.音楽聴取方法を設定し,実験を完了し,音楽体験に関するアンケート調査を行った.その結果に基づいて,提案したシステムは,従来のデジタル方式では得られない音楽体験を提供できることが分かった.
