Seminar: Acousto-optic sensing of acoustic fields

Wed 16th March 13:00 – 14:00. This seminar will be held on Teams and shown in in Newton G14. Abstract The characterization of sound fields over space is fundamental in acoustics. Yet, the acquisition of sound fields using conventional electromechanical transducers is challenging due to the high sampling requirements. In this study, we introduce an

Seminar: Modelling the Perception of Percussive Low Frequency Instruments in Rooms

Wed 9th March 13:00 – 14:00 This seminar will be streamed via Teams – click here to join. Abstract The effects of room modes on audio reproduction are well reported and researched, however a considerable amount of work typically focuses on smaller acoustic environments, such as listening rooms and control rooms. Larger listening spaces, such

Seminar: Sabine and his organ pipes – the dawn of room acoustics

Wed 23rd Feb 13:00 – 14:00 The seminar will take place in Newton building room 233, and will also be streamed via Teams. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to experience the experiment in our small reverberation chamber (subject to demand). Abstract In 1898 Sabine’s first method was published in the Proceedings of the American

Seminar: Designing a Synthesiser to Elicit a Feeling of Perceived Tension

Wed 16th Feb 12:00 – 13:00 Join via Teams Connor Welham, PhD Student, Acoustics Research Centre, Salford Tension: That unnerving and stimulating feeling you get when watching a scary movie or riding a rollercoaster. The short, sharp shock felt when an apparition jumps out from behind the camera. The uncomfortable sense present when a piece

Seminar: Hearing, Touch – the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR)

On Wed 8th December we have Clau Nader from the University of York coming to talk to us about her research on the Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). Please note the later than usual start time of 14:30. Click here to join the meeting Abstract An experience known as Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) is

Seminar: Journeys in Unconventional Computing for Music

On Wednesday 1st December we have Dr Ed Braund of the South West Creative Technology Network coming to speak to us on his Journeys in Unconventional Computing for Music. Think music, think computing, think slime! Please note the later than usual start time of 14:30. Click here to join the meeting. Bio/abstract: Dr Ed Braund is

Seminar: Adding Intelligence to Professional Audio Products

On Wed 24th Nov we had a presentation from two Salford alumni on use of Machine Learning within Professional Audio Products, such as their flagship Midas Heritage-D HD96 console (pictured below). This seminar was recorded and you can watch it back at https://youtu.be/IxEfSQLaueY and hear more about how they use this powerful technique. Adding Intelligence to

Seminar: How Machine Learning is making its way into Computational Acoustics

This seminar took place on Wednesday 17th November at 12:30 UK Time. It was recorded and you can find a video of it on YouTube at https://youtu.be/MyDo6gF1TMA. For this seminar we are fortunate to have Dr Antonio Stanziola from the Biomedical Ultrasound Group of UCL coming to talk to us about the potential for using machine learning
