Sounds In Space, hosted by Creative Technologies Research Cluster, will involve a full programme of research presentations and practical demonstrations relating to spatial sound providing a rich opportunity for exploration of academic, technical and creative practice research in the aesthetics, procedure, technology and perception of technology-based spatial sound and music using the facilities of the Markeaton Street Campus of the University of Derby. The day features a 28 speaker with-height Ambisonic Speaker Array in the main presentation room, as well as a Sonic Emotion Wave 1 Wavefield Synthesis Array demonstration.
Keynote Announced – We’re pleased to announce that John Leonard, the theatre sound design guru, will be providing the keynote for this year’s event.
