This project aims to develop novel compositional and technological methods for the advanced use of the multidimensional nature of auditory space in music composition. Specifically, the project involves the examination, design and construction of novel methods for gesture control of sound source position, sound source parameters and room model parameters within a sound spatialization system.
Research being performed within this project includes:
Other aspects of the project which are being developed by our research partners include:
Along with the research aspects of this project, there is a significant musical component. A number of pieces are being written, including works both for solo cello and also for a larger ensemble. The first of these performances took place as part of the 4th International Conference on Enactive Interfaces, and will be followed by larger performances in Montreal, QC, Canada as part of the MusiMarch08 event and again later in 2008 in BC, Canada.
