   Claims that sound differs from light in that there is "no truly quantitative attribute."

There's a contradiction later: "Pitch and aural location can be used to indicate the source of the data, while loudness indicates the severity of the condition."

Timbre equates to "what is going on?"   Added by: sirfragalot
   A network auralizer is proposed to replace the requirement to continually monitor VDU information for computer technicians and server administrators.

Soothing ambient noise (continuous sound such as rain, wind through trees etc.) indicates all is well and can be pushed to the background (pschoacoustically). Other natural sounds (croaking frogs, birds twittering etc.) indicate particular network events.

Loudness mapped to severity of event.
Timbre mapped to type of event.
Aural location mapped to source of event (which PC etc.)   Added by: sirfragalot
   Lists some sonic attributes:

Loudness: order, distinction, presence.
Pitch: order, distinction, presence.
Timbre: distinction, presence.   Added by: sirfragalot
