Aura: The Stuff Around the Stuff Around You
Kinetica are hosting a workshop on 3D audio worlds using PDAs with GPS. I am sure I read about something like this at one of the Mobile Music Workshops.
Here’s what the Kinetica site says about it:
Probably the best metaphor for an aura sound world is to imagine walking through an array of invisible audio speakers suspended in space. Each speaker represents a sound node and emits different audio depending on where you, the user, is situated in relation to it. The sounds appear to act like real sounds in the real world. Steve Symons invites you to play with his aura software and create your own 3D audio worlds using GPS enabled PDAs.
Sadly it is yet another event I can’t attend, but I thought it might interest others.
