Spatial Acoustic Synthesis

Document Thumbnail

This method leverages binaural sound synthesis to present a novel way for listeners to experience musical performances on a headphone. By separating out the notes from a musical instrument and synthesizing them individually in the space around the listener, the musical instrument is turned from a point source into a flowing musical volume that engulfs the listener. This can lead to interesting ways of thinking about a musical performance in terms of the distribution of the individual musical notes around the listener without being tied down to the notion of an individual musical instrument.
