    Seismerssion: Retrospectives on an Audio-visual installations

    Seismerssion is the title we gave our Applied Project in the context of the MCT spring semester 2019. This audio-visual installation is dedicated to the widely unknown issue of sound pollution in the ocean. In collaboration with NTNU Oceans, an intership was established to develop and implement a public installation concept for 2 different venues.

    Sonification of Near Earth Objects

    As a part of a two-week workshop in the Sonification and Sound design course, we worked on the development of a self-chosen sonification project. For three days we explored how to design and build an auditory model of Near-Earth Objects (NEO) with data collected from NASA.

  • Experiencing Ambisonics Binaurally

    Experiencing Ambisonics Binaurally

    During the MCT2022 Physical-virtual communication course we have had two sessions where we explored multichannel and ambisonic decoding. The first session, on February 27th, was mainly about recording a four channel A-format stream with an Ambisonic 360 sound microphone. We converted the A-format mic signal into a full-sphere surround sound format which was then decoded to 8 loudspeakers layout we placed evenly across the portal space. We have used the AIIRADecoder from the free and open source IEM plug-in suite.

    A generic overview to the 'Sound in Space' exhibition at KIT

    Marking the final event before Easter and from our Sonification and Sound design course I was tasked to visit the group exhibition 'Sound in Space' that took place on the 11th of April at Gallery KIT, Trondheim. It was also the closing event for the sound art course in which music-technology and fine art academy students (NTNU) could participate.

  • How music related motion tracking can sound

    How music related motion tracking can sound

    During the course 'Music related Motion Tracking' there were several approaches among the students to realize their ideas. The Opti-Track system, new to all of us consists of infrared-cameras, markers and a software with calibration tools. We were exploring the functions from scratch during the first week when hosting the 'Nordic-stand-still-championship' on both campus.

  • The Sound of Traffic - Sonic Vehicle Pathelormeter

    The Sound of Traffic - Sonic Vehicle Pathelormeter

    Is it possible to transmit complex data-sets within an instance of a sound, so the content gets revealed? As communication and dissemination of information in our modern digital world has been highly dominated by visual aspects it led to the fact that the modality of sound got neglected. In order to test the hypothesis, the project presents a model for sonification of temporal-spatial traffic data, based on principle of Parametric Mapping Sonification (PMSon) technique.
