In this seminar, PhD Candidate Jason Dasent will share insights into his research project GENISYS, which explores the application of voice assistant technology in recording studios.
Jason Dasent has over 25 years’ experience in all aspects of recording and music production. As a visually impaired producer he was challenged to overcome the limitations of mainstream music software when “accessibility” was in its infancy and over the past 6 years, began developing overlays to popular music production software, thus making them accessible to screen readers.
He now consults with several music equipment manufacturers to help them to make their hardware and software accessible from the back end. Jason is currently pursuing a PhD at Kingston University where he is developing a voice assistant for use in recording studios to allow differently abled producers and audio engineers to function more independently.
