I am looking to start a discussion and perhaps initiate some R&D collaborations around a new technology I have developed, which I call 'Pixelphonics.' The technology produces a new form of multichannel audiovisual display in which the associated sound emanates from the specific screen areas of the moving image, allowing for ‘2D sound design’ (sound composition across the image plane). The technology adds a new perceptual and experiential layer to the technology of synchronized sound by adding its spatial complement, so that sound can now be in place with its image, in addition to being in time with it.

The technology has recently been the subject of a patent filing, sponsored by my university's technology transfer unit, Apparatus, Method and System for Co-locating Visual Images and Associated Sound (U.S. Provisional Patent No. 62/482725, 2017). For a research prospectus, contact mfa13 {at} sfu {dot} ca or view the one page executive summary at
