PR-VR: Approaching Sound Field Recording in Multi-Reality Environments

This brief will communicate the author’s recent research that questions what it is to expand the horizon of field recording beyond the physical sense of sonic immediacy into the simultaneous recording of mixed physical, technological and network-based realities. In doing so this work proposes a reconstruction to what constitutes a modern sound recordist’s immediate sonic environment in today’s technologically inundated atmospheres. This brief will discuss the architecture of a PR-VR, software-based audio device capable of recording real-time, multichannel inputs and field recordings from physical, technological, and virtual acoustic spaces concurrently. By blending multi-reality input streams through algorithm this research looks to explore how modern technology can sculpt new variegated sound field recordings and formulate new hybrid, soundscapes.
