New Web Site for Ambisonic Toolkit

Bergen Center for Electronic Arts - Sat, 04/23/2016 - 14:24

http://www.ambisonictoolkit.net/

For close to four months we have experienced database problems with the previous CMS of the Ambisonic Toolkit web site, leading to frequent error messages when accessing the web site. In the end we concluded that we might just as well make a fresh start.

The new website has been set up using Jekyll and Bootstrap.

There are probably still a few wrinkles to iron out, and we’d like to develop the tutorials further, but as a start the downloads are finally available again. If you notice any issues with this site, please add an issue at GitHub in order to let us know.

Interested in a PhD position at the University of Amsterdam?

The Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) currently has two PhD positions available at the Faculty of Science starting on 1 September 2016 (or as soon after that as possible). Applications are now invited from excellent candidates wishing to conduct research in an area within ILLC (i.e. including musicology and cognitive science) that fits naturally in the Faculty of Science. See website for more information.

Soutenance de thèse de Maxime Carron

« Méthode et outils pour définir et véhiculer une identité sonore : application au design sonore identitaire de la marque SNCF ». Mardi 26 avril, 14h30 - Ircam

Thèse de doctorat, réalisée en cotutelle au sein de l'équipe Perception et design sonore à l'Ircam avec la SNCF.

Résumé

Aujourd'hui, l'identité sonore des marques concerne principalement les musiques associées aux publicités ou diffusées sur les points de vente, ainsi que des éléments de communication comme la voix ou les jingles. Ces travaux de thèse s'intéressent au design sonore des produits et équipements en tant que vecteur de l'identité de marque. Nous proposons une méthodologie de design sonore identitaire permettant de traduire les valeurs d'une marque en termes sonores, et de véhiculer l'identité sonore ainsi définie sur une série d'objets caractéristiques de la marque.

À partir d'une analyse d'un grand nombre d'études sur la perception des sons, nous avons établi un lexique sonore de 35 termes adapté à la communication autour des caractéristiques du son pertinentes pour le design. Nous proposons d'utiliser ce lexique ainsi que différents outils de communication pour traduire les valeurs identitaires d'une marque en termes sonores compréhensibles par tous les acteurs du projet en design sonore, qu'ils aient ou non une expertise dans le domaine du son.

Nous proposons également une méthode d'analyse fonctionnelle permettant de spécifier les contraintes techniques liées à la nature ou à la fonction de l'objet choisi pour véhiculer l'identité. Cette méthode repose sur une expérience d'indexation sonore, adaptée de l'analyse sensorielle, dont l'utilisation dans le domaine du son reste aujourd'hui très marginale. La méthodologie proposée a été appliquée au design de l'identité sonore de la marque SNCF véhiculée à travers différentes sources (alarmes, composteurs, tableau d’affichage, validations électroniques…). Ces travaux ont permis de construire et de tester des méthodologies et outils facilitant la communication dans le design sonore, et ont montré que l'identité des marques pouvait s'exprimer à travers la conception des sons de leurs produits et équipements.

La soutenance se déroulera devant le jury composé de :

Stephen McAdams, Rapporteur - McGill University, Montreal, CanadaJean-François Petiot, Rapporteur - École centrale de NantesMichèle Castellengo, Examinateur - CNRS, UPMC, ParisDavide Rocchesso, Examinateur - Università di Venezia, ItaliePhilippe Langlois, Examinateur - École supérieure des Beaux-arts, Le MansAlain Goudey, Membre Invité - Neoma Business School, ReimsPatrick Susini, Directeur de thèse - STMS - CNRS/IRCAM/UPMC, ParisNicolas Misdariis, Encadrant - STMS- CNRS/IRCAM/UPMC, ParisFrançoise Dubois, Encadrante - SNCF, Innovation et recherche, Paris

Date:  Fri, 04/29/2016 - 12:30pm - 1:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Guest Lecture Federico Llach will present a selection of his works and will discuss the role that conceptual statements have had in arriving at unforeseen sonic or staging outcomes for his compositions: an instalation where musical scores are shredded, a musical ping-pong game and an audiovisual exploration of contrasts in video and music. Llach will unveil some techniques used in his compositions "This Time Around" and "Umpqua" and will intiate a discussion on its aesthetic consequences.
