The Game of Life System for Wave Field Synthesis (FULLY BOOKED)
This workshop is aimed to introduce you to the Wave Field Synthesis sound system of 192 loudspeakers. It is organised in a square surrounding the listener, and is able to perform a wave field synthesis for the placement of virtual sound sources within the diffusion area. You will be introduced to the WFSCollider software by Wouter Snoei. This software allows precise control of the system, playback sounds, and positioning of the sound sources. It comes with a graphical interface to facilitate the design of trajectories in space and time, and many more variables to control the sound diffusion parameters.

Wouter Snoei, Composer and Software programmer

Sonic Movement and Dance, a demo session (FULLY BOOKED)
