Other business or activities at the meeting:
Winter term has started and this means to all audio engineering freshmen: UNI RALLYE!
This year the AES Student Section Graz again took part in the annual introduction to the campus, at which freshmen of the study are guided through the two universities and have to solve exciting tasks on their journey.
We thought of something very special: a binaural paperchase! Combining the html tool "walkthrough" by Thomas Deppisch and the iem headtracker by Michael Romanov, Paul Berghold and Daniel Rudrich two sound environments were created in which the participants could move around. At first the various instruments from the band "Juju Men" had to be determined, followed by whale song, "Kabinenparty" (a famous Austrian pop song) and Stockhausen. They all were arranged in a sound environment created specifically for the uni rallye.
In the evening, after an exquisite feast (also provided from the freshmen within the rallye), the results were presented and a winner team elected. We want to emphasize that every piece of equipment used - software, headtracker and recordings - were local projects from the students, we burst with pride!
Hopefully, we can do it next year again. But first we start in the new semester. See you soon!
