A Series of Three Mixed Reality Workshops: Sounding Out – Sound in Mixed Reality Environment

Abstract

The second workshop in the series of practical mixed reality workshops, defined in Workpackage 7b.1, focusses on sound. This is the topic with which most of the eRENA partners have to deal: finding technical and aesthetic solutions for sound, within an image oriented mixed environment. Virtual (and mixed) reality environments often lack a convincing solution for all aspects of sound. The workshop took place at the ZKM, on December, 2nd and 3rd 1999. Five lectures and demonstrations, presented by eRENA partner’s collaborators, alternated with discussions among the participants. The deliverable documents the content of the workshop structured in four parts: sound in relation to its form of data, in relation to space, to image, and to interaction. One of the achievements of the workshop was in showing how many different relationships are existing around these four aspects. Artistic and pragmatic use of sound in mixed reality environments were regarded as well as the different accesses to visual and audio matters.
