Shane A. Myrbeck is a sound artist, composer and acoustician living in Oakland. He operates in a variety of sonic contexts, including installation design, composition, architectural acoustics consulting, music performance, lecturing and sound recording. Shane’s work explores the visceral and immersive nature of sound through spatial audio display, architectural form and multi-sensory phenomena. His work has been exhibited at Fort Mason Center, Intersection for the Arts, Gray Area, the Lab, California Academy of Sciences, Proxy, ODC Theatre, Alterspace, Hosfelt Gallery, Arup SoundLab, the Whitehaus, IBM Tokyo and on the streets of San Francisco. He was also an Artist-in-Residence at the Exploratorium, San Francisco’s interactive science museum.  Shane spends his professional life as an architectural acoustics designer at Arup, and is in charge of the San Francisco SoundLab, an immersive, full-sphere ambisonic sound studio used for composition and acoustic simulation.
