The University of Derby is pleased to announce a joint symposium event organised by the Creative Technologies Research Group (CTRG) and Digital and Material Arts Research Centre (D:MARC). Digital Hybridity + Sounds In Space will involve a full programme of research presentations and practical demonstrations relating to the sound and visual arts, the combination of these events providing a rich opportunity for exploration of academic, technical and creative practice research in the aesthetics, procedure, technology, perception, and pedagogy of technology-based sound, music, and intermedia art.
Sound In Space: Exploring visual and sound arts practice, the symposium will present a number of original spatial sound works including a multichannel “collaborative sound canvas” comprising sound events developed, captured, processed,composed, and assembled by students and staff of the Faculty of Arts, Design & Technology. Introducing leading edge research in surround sound technology, education and application, the aesthetics and implications of a shifting paradigm in sound creativity through technology will be explored in an intensive, immersive and playful way.
The call for papers and contributions, and full details about the joint symposium event can be found in Digital Hybridity + Sounds in Space (1212 downloads)
