Occasionally I speak in public on spatial audio, the evolution of art + technology, and related topics. This can take different forms — conferences, symposia/panels/workshops, sometimes an interview. Some examples are included below.
A Planned Disappearance
Emily and I also created a sound piece for this exhibit. You can find it here.
Sound and Emotion Colloquium
A two-day conference at Swissnex with some of the foremost experts on music and emotion cognition. My slides are here and video of my invited talk is below:
Using Ambisonic Technology in Entertainment and Design
An article I recently co-authored about the Arup SoundLab in Protocol magazine
Design Thinking in Cities
Art, Technology and the Environment
The New Humanity Conference: TechnoHumanity
Another panel, this one hosted by Mediate at the Intersection for the Arts in SF. Again, fascinating conversation, and fine company.
Spatial Audio Lecture Series, CNMAT, UCBerkeley
I was very flattered to have been invited to lecture as part of this series.
The impact of visual cues on auditory perception
My graduate research at RPI was focused on multisensory perception, particularly this topic. I co-authored a paper published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America as part of that work.
Sound Research Meetup, GAFFTA
Immersive Audio Environments for Composition & Simulation
This is a workshop I lead occasionally which is focused on the production of immersive audio. Specifically, we talk about ambisonics, because that’s what I have available (which is amazing). The workshop is held at Arup, facilitated by GAFFTA, and turns out to be a really interesting discussion with some very savvy spaced-out sound folk.
Internet of Things Conference, Tokyo (2010)
I was here with Engin Ayaz, Sha Hwang and Zain Memon. We were invited to speak about the TV/TN project, which was lucky, because Tokyo is wonderful. Our work was published in the IEEE digital library.
ASA Pan Iberian/American Meeting on Acoustics, Cancun (2010)
I went to Cancun and Tokyo for conferences within the space of a month! At this conference, I presented on Contemporary Theatre Design on behalf of Arup. What a bizarre place Cancun is — why doesn’t anyone swim in the beautiful gulf? why do they swim in pools just yards from it?
