22nd UK Conference - Next Week!
Illusions in Sound: the application of psychoacoustics to audio
April 11-12, 2007
New Hall, Cambridge, UK
The 22nd AES UK Conference will cover the whole gamut of techniques,
technologies and controversies involved in the art of creating
convincing illusions in audio through the use of psychoacoustics - our
knowledge of how the ear/brain combination works to enable us to hear
and localise sounds around us.
Among almost 20 papers, the role of psychoacoustics in consumer and
sound reinforcement audio system and loudspeaker design will be
examined, along with an overview of the latest developments in spatial
recording and reproduction. The latest, stunning techniques for
realising full 3D surround will be unveiled, and dramatically different
approaches to the art of creating surround recordings will be
contrasted, along with a panel that asks the question, "What do we
really want from surround-sound?"
Presenters will look at how the 'sound' of real acoustic spaces can be
captured for use in surround reverberation systems, provide an overview
of audio in the electronic games industry and discuss the applications
of surround-sound in radio drama. Wavefield synthesis techniques and
hierarchical structures for delivering highest quality surround to a
range of target systems will be examined along with the art of creating
music in space - and spaces for music.
Presentations will cover both the most recent research and the latest
practical developments in the art of creating sonic illusions.
In addition to the papers there will be two demonstration rooms in which
current 3D and planar spatial reproduction systems can be experienced,
compared and enjoyed, with a wide variety of content.
More information is available on-line.
Authors, April 10 is the deadline for proposed papers (complete
manuscripts of 4 to 10 pages).
