Computational Media and Arts Seminar Series


Sound as Material, Sound as Representation

9:30am - 11:00am
Rm1032, LSK Building

The talk introduces various aspects of my work which investigates two approaches to sound: as material and as representation. Reconciling the concerns of auditory display and music, I will begin with how the possibilities of sonification and algorithmic composition may be considered. The technique is further developed through simultaneous data sonification and visualisation, or audiovisualisation. I will then present recent work using directional audio for the playback of Ambisonics (spatial audio) field recordings in the context of mass surveillance. In closing, I will introduce SoundLab, a 3D audio research and practice unit of which I am co-director.
