With the title "The Conscious Sound Byte," Thomas Dolby's AES Keynote address will focus on next-generation sound technologies, in particular adaptive/non-linear music and audio for games, VR/AR, "hearables" and other new media platforms. "A big difference between 'real' and 'electronic' sounds is that electronic sounds have zero awareness of each other," shares Prof. Dolby. "Sound bytes blindly follow orders, and fire off (usually) as instructed by a human. Yet musicians playing 'real' instruments listen, resonate, and respond to the music, the room, and to each other, in a matter of microseconds."
