|December 2013||Presenting a talk at Goldsmith's college about audio for virtual environments and games.
|November 2013||Attended ICT2013 in Vilnius, Lithuania, a networking event leading to Horizon 2020. 6000 attendees, very impressive organization.I feel a little closer to Europe now.|
||Presenting an invited paper at AES52
in Guildford: Quasi Wavefield Synthesis, modifying WFS for improved
reproduction on rectangular arrays, using numerical solutions.
Especially useful for stabilizing distant images on a smaller array,
without any significant additional rendering costs.
||Starting a new Knowledge
Transfer Partnership (KTP) with Wernick Ltd in Leicester, manufacturers
of market leading electronic percussion instruments. We will be
developing an electronics framework for more advanced sensing and
in Paris to stay with the spatial audio group led by Olivier Warusfel
and Markus Noisternig. Many interesting discussions, and expressos.
Also presented the O-Bow to a general audience of researchers. Very
positive response, and Jean Lochard from the Modalys group then quickly
patched it into a modal string model, with very interesting results.
||Following TEI13 the O-Bow was covered by the
New-Scientist and then many others including Wired, Gizmodo, Daily
Mail, Arts Journal.
||Gave first academic
presentation of the O-Bow
at the Tanglible Embedded and Embodied Interaction conference in
Great feedback from a cross section of top international researchers. Varied and interesting demo session with ~50 exhibits.
||The Phya has been
overhauled and is now hosted on Google Code @ phya-code
