A climate of fear: Considerations for designing a virtual acoustic ecology of fear

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

This paper proposes a framework that incorporates fear, acoustics, thought processing and digital game sound theory; with the potential to not only improve understanding of our relationship with fear, but also generate a foundation for reliable and significant manipulation of the fear experience. A brief literature review provides the context for a discussion of fear and sound in virtual worlds before the framework is described; concluding remarks point to future empirical work testing and refining the framework.
