Sound Design in Our Sound Environment: Soundscape Design, Auralisation and Evaluation in Environmental Acoustics

Activity: Talk or presentationInvited talk


Invited Audio Engineering Society/Institute of Acoustics Midlands Section Christmas Lecture:

The soundscape of our environment helps us to better understand the world we live in, and has a direct impact on our health and wellbeing. Auralisation – the audio equivalent of visualisation - is key in developing a better and more creative understanding of how significant changes or infrastructure planning in our urban environment can have an impact on our related environmental soundscape. This presentation gives an overview of how auralisation has been used in the context of recent soundscape case studies at the University of York AudioLab, with examples ranging from soundwalks to acoustic scene analysis and classification. The complete auralisation chain will be considered, from source measurement to soundscape monitoring, through sound propagation modelling, soundfield rendering, and the potential offered by new methods in immersive capture and presentation.
