Angela McArthur is a PhD student on the Media, Arts & Tech programme at Queen Mary University London. Her research focuses on spatial sound for virtual and multimodal environments, in particular developing experimental approaches to sound design. Drawing from probabilistic approaches to musical meaning, she is developing a conceptual framework which applies these approaches and in doing so, suggests a way to unify sound and image. Her work synthesises technical and creative practice with auditory perception and cognition research. She has been working with the BBC R&D lab, and gaining first-hand knowledge of the workflows and implementations of sound and image for VR. With a number of soho-based production partners she is making her own cinematic VR film, which employs audio interactivity and aims to embody and further develop her conceptual framework.
