For the workshop we will be using Max and Jamoma. Jamoma has extensive support for sound spatialisation, and offers a standardised interface to the various techniques, as well as the option of working on large loudspeaker setups extending beyond standard industry configurations such as ITU 5.1.
Finally we will look into how to control the spatial scene, and e.g. describe geometric patterns and trajectories for the movement of virtual sound sources.
Registration is limited to 12 people. Deadline for registering is April 27th or when 12 people have registered.
