Fri Jun 8 05:00:46 CEST 2012

(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.

Language: English

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.
