Markeaton Street Campus

This is a low cost event, with meals and light refreshments provided.  If you wish to register for the event, then please visit

Sounds In Space, hosted by Creative Technologies Research Group, will involve a full programme of research presentations and practical demonstrations relating to spatial sound providing a rich opportunity for exploration of academic, technical and creative practice research in the aesthetics, procedure, technology and perception of technology-based spatial sound and music using the facilities of the Markeaton Street Campus of the University of Derby.  The day features a 28 speaker with-height Ambisonic Speaker Array in the main presentation room, as well as a Sonic Emotion Wave 1 Wavefield Synthesis Array.

Call for Works:
If you’re interested in demonstrating your work (research, case study, surround sound/VR installation/composition etc), then please see the call and further details PDF below. The event is a relaxed and stimulating one with time for networking/questions and discussion.  Feedback on previous years symposia has been excellent, and there’s always a great mix of theory and practise with a focus on demonstrations and examples during the day using the 32 speaker 3D array installed in the presentation room for the event.
