Dr. Gavin Kearney, Department of Theatre, Film and Television, University of York. Recent advances in immersive video technology, such as ultra-high definition video or 3-D visual headsets like the Oculus rift, are paving the way for immersive 360-degree virtual reality media systems in the home. Surround sound systems will naturally accompany such video technologies but reproduction in domestic media ‘caves’ or on headsets is not without significant challenges. This talk discusses the role spatial audio will play in the development of personal and domestic VR systems and looks at the technological and content creation possibilities and limitations for immersive audio-visual media.

Bamsa Marcos Campello – Guitar

This is a solo guitar improvisation concert. No tunes, no tuning. Maybe some pedals. Dancing is welcome. It is possible it will get really loud and really soft. No guarantees. An imaginary drum might be heard. Marcos is a Brazilian guitarist from Rio de Janeiro. He received a master’s degree in composition at UFRJ (Federal University of Rio de Janeiro). He has been part of Rio’s improvisation / experimental scene since early 2000’s, and plays guitar in the band Chinese Cookie Poets, a free-noise jazz-core out-samba trio from Rio.
