Spatial Audio Workshop participants selected!

Twelve participants were selected from a total of 32 applications, from applicants based internationally as well as within Sweden.

The selection process was tough as we received many great applications and we could see a strong benefit for most of the applicants in attending the workshops. However, after some deliberation, the selection panel selected twelve outstanding applications from applicants with a wide variety of backgrounds in areas such as immersive art, electroacoustic composition, music education, sound art, theatre practice, neuroscience and experience design. 

Applicants were selected, primarily, based on the level of their interest in spatial audio and how this connected to their existing practice and/or research. We also looked to applicants interested in exploring aesthetic as well as technical questions around spatial audio, and applicants who were open to learning new techniques and discussing approaches within the group. We now look forward to the workshops in the autumn with what we think will be a very engaged and productive group of participants! 

During the first workshops (9–13 September 2024), we will look at an overview of spatial audio from a sensory and psychoacoustic perspective, introduce some of the many techniques we will explore during the three weeks, and start to get familiar with the multi-channel speaker array we will use at IAC.

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.
