A dynamic space for sonic experimentation

With extensive digital composition tools and a high-performance sound system, the Spatial Audio Studio offers exceptional resources for exploring sonic practice or enhancing work across a wide range of mediums. Arranged around a central workstation, its immersive acoustical dome and software interface lets students experiment in real time as they investigate the audio dimensions of art and design.

The studio's library of programming platforms, digital audio workstations and specialized software supports several Digital + Media courses focused on sonic practice, as well as ones offered through the Computation, Technology and Culture interdisciplinary concentration. Through studios and independent research opportunities, students take advantage of this space to compose experimental music, design soundscapes for time-based media and simulate architectural acoustics, among other possibilities.
