Latest developments in spatial audio and computer aided composition tools from
IRCAM

24th – 26th November: Days of research seminars and workshops at University of Oslo, Department of Musicology and Norwegian Academy of Music.

Invited guests:

Jean Bresson: Leading the Research and Development part on computeraided composition at IRCAM.

Thibaut Carpentier: Research and Development Engineer; Acoustic and Cognitive Spaces Team, responsible for Spat?s design and development.

Dimitri Bouche: Ph.D Candidate in Computer Science applied to Music.

Carpentier, Bouche and Bresson are deeply involved in the development of IRCAM?s spatial audio and computer aided composition tools. Recently, spatial audio within spat has grown to include very high order 3D ambisonics and wavefield synthesis in an efficient, flexible and powerful configuration. Likewise, OpenMusic has transformed as tool for instrumental composers to a tool that integrates signal processing. Our guests from IRCAM will present their latest developments in a morning of researchoriented presentations and in an afternoon of practical spatial audio demos and workshops.
