> Symposia/Workshops


Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA) — Aug. 2014

Selected to present a spatial audio workshop: Participants were introduced to historical developments in spatial audio compositions and technological developments including panning algorithms, dvd formats/layouts, spatial composition environments and current developments in spatial auditory research. 

 

Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA) — Aug. 2014

Presentation of a peer reviewed paper: Experiment to Evaluate the Implementation of Spatial Extent with Spectral Spatialisation. This paper reviewed psychometric testing of the spatial application and the implementation of graphical methodologies for recording participant responses.

SPSS Statistics, National University of Ireland Maynooth (NUIM) — Feb. 2013

An intensive week long course on statistics and the use of SPSS statistic analysis software. Topics included: Frequencies and descriptive statistics, Cross tab analysis, Chi-Square and correlation statistics, Bi-variate and multivariate correlations and regression analysis.

 

Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA) — Aug. 2013

Presentation of a peer reviewed research paper: Perceptual effects associated with spatialised partials and frequency bands in a multichannel environment. This reviewed classical and contemporary literature and outlined my expansion of these concepts in 2D and 3D virtual auditory display environments.

 

Irish Sound, Science and Technology Association (ISSTA) — Aug. 2013

Presentation of a peer reviewed multichannel composition: This work was a demonstration of theories of source width extent as applied to spectral spatialisation. It was realised with my own spatial application designed for 2D and 3D multichannel arrays.

 

Dublin Art and Technology Association (DATA) — Jul. 2012

A national call to showcase emerging talent and provide a public platform for innovative projects happening across Art, Digital Media, Technology and Interactive Design. This was a competitive process with seven places for which I was selected. Presentation included development of a spatial application informed by psychoacoustic research.

 

Received funding from Culture Ireland to present composition research at Tokyo Wonder Site Academy in Japan with world renowned music collective, Ensemble Modern. This culminated in a collaborative composition performed at the Tokyo Women’s Plaza venue. 

Tokyo, Japan — Oct 2011

 

Selected to participate from an EU wide call for researchers in the domains of perceptual research that included machine learning, music cognition, auditory cognition and creative practice.  An intensive ten day summer school dealing with the aforementioned areas including lectures on neuropsychology. I led a group project that was awarded best presentation of the school. 

Plymouth, UK — May 2012

 



> invited speaker/events


Naviar Haiku Fest in London October 2018
