  CANCELED: Garden Gatherings - Spatial Audio from Measurement to Reproduction  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER.

Meet us in the Moss Arts Center lobby by the mural wall for short talks and interesting conversations.

Immersive audio or 3D sound is seeing a rush of interest due to the broad release of VR devices such as the Oculus Rift. To enhance the audio experience in VR, producers are beginning to settle on a technique known as ambisonics to record and reproduce 3D audio. Ambisonics is a full sphere surround sound technique that relies on four simultaneously recorded channels using a special sound field microphone. This talk will cover the basics of ambisonic recording and reproduction including the necessary hardware and software.

Mike Roan is a professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Virginia Tech. His research interests include development spatial audio algorithms and human perception in VR environments, particularly related to 3D sound. Prior to coming to Virginia Tech in 2005, Mike was head of the signal processing department at the Applied Research Laboratory at Penn State. There he developed automated detection and classification algorithms for various applications. Mike received his BS, Physics('89), MS, Acoustics ('91) and PhD, Acoustics ('99) all from Penn State.

This project has been made possible through the generous support of the School of Performing Arts, the Humanities at Virginia Tech, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA), the School of Visual Arts, the Moss Arts Center, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT).
