Meeting Topic: 3D Audio & Soundscapes Department Monthly Meeting
Moderator Name: Carla Gatica
Speaker Name: Carla Gatica, Leandro E. Rodríguez, Mauro E. Pires, Diego Flores, David Joya, Julián Perasso
Meeting Location: Buenos Aires
Last Thursday 27, the 3D Audio department of our Student Section performed a new virtual meeting that clarified some ideas and thoughts about the upcoming school event called "Audio Expertos 2020", that will gather lots of information about various topics (including 3D immersive audio, acoustics, psychoacoustics, and more...).
In case of the department already mentioned, the main activity of this year is the one referred to the creation of an Ambisonics maded soundscape. Individual soundscapes will be presented the day of the event, and all of them will be conceived by a different way of working the material and different philosophies to reach our objectives.
In this context, some of us discussed about getting involved in game audio (with Unity), others with the conception of new music production oriented to immersive-audio, the importance of a head tracking device in immersive audio monitoring, and last but not less important, the capability of audio only (without any external references, e.g.: visuals) designed material to perform a good immersive experience.
This was a very, very brief summary of what "Audio Expertos 2020" will become.
