Inter Arts Center announces a Spatial Audio Workshop during autumn 2024 that will investigate spatial audio techniques to explore ways of leveraging the potential of spatial audio for creating immersive experiences and opening up new possibilities for listening.

Spatial audio is currently experiencing a renaissance period through the rise of various extended reality (XR) applications. This has occurred alongside rapid spatial audio development within arts, music and gaming applications made possible by increasing processing power, and a proliferation of open source software, sensor-based technologies and spatial audio microphone technologies.

The workshop will take place over three weeks during autumn 2024 where participants will work closely together to try out different spatial audio techniques over both headphones and a multi-speaker Genelec array.

The workshops will be led by Sebastian Hastrup and Tim Bishop, both experienced sound designers and engineers focusing specifically on spatial audio. The Spatial Audio Workshop is funded with support from Sten K Johnson Foundation.

The workshop will consist of three full-time weeks (Monday to Friday) during weeks 37, 41 and 45. It is expected that all participants commit to on-site participation during these weeks.
