‘Auralisation: designing with sound’ will be the theme for this year’s Reproduced Sound conference taking place at the Thistle Hotel in Brighton from the 14th to 16th November.
“Having explored the role of the audio and electro acoustic specialist within the context of the project, we will spend time this year considering the opportunities that auralisation techniques offer to the task of representing sound in the design of buildings and systems. “ Says event chairman, Paul Malpas.
“Whether the end product is a piece of technology or an architectural statement, we all know the importance of what we hear and how that contributes to the broader success of the project or product. However, it is our colleagues and clients who need to be convinced, and sometimes numbers just don't tell the right story.”
The conference is now in it’s 28th year and the highlights for this year’s event include a paper from audio educator President of SynAudCon USA Pat Brown who will deliver the Peter Barnett Memorial Award presentation on “A practical merger of the measurement, listening and prediction processes, using B-Format Room Impulse Responses”.
“Reproduced Sound conferences represent the cutting edge of modern audio and acoustics in an informal environment where attendees freely mingle and welcome the sharing of insight and information,” added Malpas.Article continues below
“Over the years they’ve become firmly established as a ‘must attend’ event for many people from a wide background in acoustics and audio sectors, from acoustic scientists to audio system designers, and from consulting engineers to venue operators, to name just a few, and this year’s conference promises to be one of the best yet. Once bitten, most of us come back year after year, to refresh our friendships and inspire our minds.”
Arup team members will also show how the proposed HS2 London-Birmingham rail line will affect communities along the route by taking the project “off paper and into your ears”.
