Together with Marian Weger I went to the Sound and Music Computing Conference 2012 (SMC) in Copenhagen, Denmark. We presented the work we did on Designing Simulacra. The how and why of electronic replication of mechanical instruments using electronic means and Pure Data. The paper is part of the proceedings.
A description of the project can be found here.
I presented a paper entitled “Investigations on Cylindrical Microphone Arrays” written together with Hannes Pomberger and Franz Zotter from the IEM. Basically this work deals with the spatial resolution of a rigid cylindrical microphone array in different layouts. We propose a measure for the spatial resolution. Simulations of the array were done using the Boundary Element Mehtod (BEM).
The AES UK/Ambisonics Symposium 2012 took place in York, UK. A small but charming city. York is the home of Ambisonics pioneer Dave Malham. It was an exciting conference to be at!
This paper was part of my master thesis. More information on that see here.
