Spatial Audio


2018 AES International Conference on Spatial Reproduction
—Aesthetics and Science—

Dates: August 7th-9th, 2018 (with pre-event on 6th)
Location: Tokyo, Japan

Many practical technologies have been developed in the area of spatial audio since the last international conference in Tokyo, AES International Conference on Spatial Audio —Sense the Sound of Space—, was held in 2010. We have managed to handle the technology and used it to create countless works since then. In the light of such technology-driven content creation, it may be the time to address ourselves to the aesthetics in audio production.

The committee is expecting discussions in the following topics:

  • How can the Spatial Audio technology contribute to music and other artistic productions?
  • What technologies and scientific knowledge are expected from musicians and the content creators?
  • What are the keys for connecting Science and Aesthetics in this area?
