SERG at the University of Aberdeen, Abertay University and and Robert Gordon University, in association with SCAN, sonADA and SGSAH, held a two-day training workshop (17th -18th March 2017) at the University of Aberdeen, which provided doctoral students with the theoretical and practical skill-set to understand the role of space and spatiality in sound and image, particularly focusing on 3D audio rendering, sonification and visualisation technologies in constructing, making sense of and interacting with 3D space and exploring ways in which these technologies could be utilised in their own artistic and theoretical work.
The workshop comprised a series of seminars, technical sessions and performance/screening of works by three internationally renowned professionals in the field of 3D sound and 3D visualisation whose main artistic outcomes have focused on space and spatiality.
The three invited keynote presenters were:
- Professor Paul Koonce – University of Florida (creative use of Wave Field Synthesis)
- Trond Lossius – Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts (ambisonics)
- Johannes Deutsch (sonification and visualisation of space)
Doctoral trainees from various disciplines (music and sound art, film and visual culture, museum studies, game studies, and fine arts) attended the workshops.
