REALTIME SOUND SPATIALIZATION WITH WAVE FIELD SYNTHESIS
(led by Arthur Sauer and Wouter Snoei)
This 3-day seminar will deal with both musical and technical issues
surrounding spatial composition, focusing in particular on working with
wave field synthesis systems. The seminar will be taught by Arthur Sauer
and Wouter Snoei, two of the core members of the The Game Of Life
Foundation‘s team. The foundation's unique mobile wave field synthesis
system (composed of 192 speakers and 12 subwoofers) will be available
on-site for participants to experiment and gain hands-on familiarity
with space as a compositional parameter.
Wave field synthesis is a technique for sound spatialization. It
produces “artificial” wave fronts synthesized by a large number of
individually driven speakers. Such wave fronts seem to originate from a
virtual starting point. Contrary to traditional spatialization
techniques such as stereo, the localization of virtual sources in WFS
does not depend on or change with the listener’s position. As opposed to
most multichannel systems, WFS has no sweet spot and allows for a wider
optimal listening area.
Level: Aimed at musicians, composers, sound and media artists, music
software developers. Participants will be organized into two groups
according to their background and experience. The first group will work
with a graphical GUI interface and requires just basic sound editing
knowledge. The second group will use the SuperCollider interface to the
wave field synthesis system and therefore requires previous familiarity
with this environment.
Tutors: Arthur Sauer and Wouter Snoei.
