ADC 2020 : Spatial Audio : Showing you what you already know

Here’s this year’s talk, which lockdown allowed me to deliver as something between a lecture and a documentary:

And, as promised, here are some of the binaural bits and pieces in case you want to compare them or listen to them at your own pace.

(I am reminded why I haven’t played the clarinet in public for 20 years. But they’re good enough to prove the points I make in the talks.)

Malcolm Arnold, Sonatina for Clarinet and Piano. II. Andantino

Francis Poulenc, Sonata for Clarinet and Piano. II. Romanza

In case you want to play with your own spatialiser:

The clarinet was spatialised at 30 degrees left; the piano at the centre and 30 degrees right. Keyboard noises were added at 30 degrees right.

The recording room is 13’6 wide by 34′ long by 10′ tall, with the recording taking place about 21′ forward from the wall behind the audience. Sorry about Imperial measurements, but the room was built in the Eighteenth Century so it seems appropriate.
