This paper discusses the applicability of the “cognitive map” metaphor to potential usages of artificial auditory environments. The theoretical contents of such maps are suggested. Maps are generally considered as having spatial, temporal, causal and territorial representational character, so that affordances in the environment can be utilized in timely fashion. A goal of this theorizing is that artificial auditory environ-ments could appropriately represent affordances for interaction in entertainment, sim-ulation and auditory cognitive training.
