Immersive Audio Workshop


@IKLECTIK

In this introductory full-day workshop you will learn the theory and practice of working with immersive audio technology. The workshop will take place at IKLECTIK on the AMOENUS 3D sound system (a semispherical array of 17 speakers).

Following a seminar on the aesthetics and applications of spatial sound in the arts, on Ambisonics recording and playback systems and binaural audio alongside live demonstrations, the workshop will focus on Envelop for Live, a collection of free, open-source immersive audio production tools that work with Ableton Live 10/11 Suite.

Participants will then work on a short 3D sound composition of their own in binaural audio before a feedback session, where all pieces will be listened to on the AMOENUS sound system.

FUTURESHOOK


︎Music performances in a 25 channel speaker system @Aures London
︎In collaboration with Edited Arts

Futureshook explores the ways in which modern audio-visual technologies have affected the way we create and consume art - from the re-imagining of turntablism to combining the acoustic with the electronic.

Featuring performances by Shiva Feshareki, Ben Vince & Lucinda Chua, MARMO and Ben Koosha

Amoenus is a non-profit art organisation that facilitates, educates, curates, and promotes immersive art centred around 3D sound.

We support the development of sound-driven artforms that blur the boundaries between artists and audiences.

Amoenus wishes to introduce a change in the way in which art is consumed today: departing from the traditional one-sided mode of artistic consumption, it welcomes its audience in the middle of creative expression.

We work with charity and non-profit organisations to set up and manage our pop-up performance spaces, prioritising creative hubs and recycled buildings & infrastructures.  

The organisation serves as a nexus between funding bodies and independent makers & creatives, distributing the totality of its income to those involved in the creative process.











Bespoke 3D Sound System


AMOENUS has put together a team of engineers and manufacturers to built its very own 3D sound system. The speakers have been built to the highest standard of audio fidelity to bring studio sound quality into public performance spaces.


Using open source Ambisonics technology our sound system becomes a 3D sound field - "sound objects" can be positioned in any location and move freely across space.

This can be used to craft highly somatic sound-driven artistic experiences

Our sound system was made possible by:

  


Audio Spatialisation


Our sound system includes a variety of different spatial audio tools, allowing artists to control sound position in different ways.

︎AUDITIF: Any sound sources can be positioned, "sculpted", in the space and their trajectory controlled through an innovative approach that resembles commonly used tools for electronic music composition. The sonic sculpture can be performed in real-time through Auditif touch-based controller app.

︎ENVELOP 4 LIVE: a suite of Ambisonics devices, fully integrated in the popular audio workstation Ableton Live. This option is best suited for music composition.

︎Using motion sensor technologies such as distance sensors or smart wearable technology such as FLOWFAL. 

︎Sound source position can be controlled via OSC, opening 3D sound spatialisation up to any type of changing data.


︎3D sound performances/compositions can be recorded for playback on any other speaker system, in stereo or binaural format, providing spatial sound impression in headhones.
