In this paper we explore how to embed information into users’ music playlists while limiting the obtrusiveness to the user. We focus on continuous over time information rather than discrete information (e.g. "monitoring traffic flow" versus "new email received"). We are presenting results for a traffic monitoring task (4 levels) for 10 users that are engaged in either a cognitive (Sudoku solving) or one of two physical tasks (running on a treadmill or playing table tennis), with up to a 98 % detection rate.
