Sounds In Space, hosted by Creative Technologies Research Group, 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 24 speaker with-height Ambisonic Speaker Array and headphone feeds to every seat in the main presentation room and we encourage audio demonstrations throughout the event!

Call For Works (open for 2020)

If you’re interested in demonstrating your work (research, case study, surround sound installation/composition etc), then please look at this page.

The event is a relaxed, and stimulating one with time for networking/questions and discussion. Feedback on previous years symposia has been excellent, and there’s always a great mix of theory and practise with a focus on demonstrations and examples during the day).
