Immersive Audio Interest Group

Synopsis

The NYU Immersive Audio Group is motivated by a common interest in building an expertise in the use of 3D audio technology recording and processing techniques.

Our projects aim to explore the recording of immersive audio/video experiences by integrating 360 video capture with different binaural recording and mixing techniques. The projects explore various kind of scenarios from static to dynamic setups, with the ultimate goal of recording a full 360° sphere of musical events in New York City. The recorded material is prepared for reproduction in Virtual Reality headsets, where the user can freely pan through the audiovisual scene and enjoy a dynamic 3D audio environment.

The group also takes up the challenge of developing new VR software tools for the manipulation of sound through interactive controls within the experience. These tools are intended to aid the audio engineer in designing and mixing a VR audio scene, and also establish interaction controls between listeners and sound objects.

The group involves both faculty and students from the Music Technology program at NYU Steinhardt.
