Acoustic, and sound environments and settings
From acoustics to psychoacoustics to management and control of sound broadcasting: acoustic wellbeing and sound reinforcement
This year’s AudioForum aims to investigate the concept of sound environments and settings: the relationship between quality sound broadcasting, architectural and environmental acoustics, the listening experience, acoustic wellbeing and related psychological implications.
Whether it is a voice or sounds and music, the proper and comfortable use of a sound stimulus is obtained by the sum of acoustic and electro-acoustic adjustments. A proper and comfortable listening environment, independently of the size or destination of use, is obtained by calibrating architectural and structural features with a well-designed sound installation that is properly installed and optimized, thanks in part to modern technologies and techniques of sound control. In this way, the listener will be able to appreciate both the sound content in and of itself and the positive experience of its usage. An experience that includes aspects of acoustic wellbeing, without leaving out psychological variables.The human auditory system processes sound before the visual one does, and at a deeper level, too. So much so that even a consciously imperceptible stimulus can influence peoples’ experience, perceptions and behavior in the background.
AudioForum@ISE 2019’s program was created to involve both professionals with technical training – sound designers, systems integrators, sound engineers, acoustic specialists, multimedia producers, etc. – and those coming from the world of architectural and environmental design – architects, consultants, engineers, etc. It may also be of interest to all those called to manage environments and spaces, such as the directors of hotels, schools and universities, public, sporting or cultural areas, etc.
The event will focus on the following subject areas:
- Production, broadcasting and perception of sound
- Sound environments and settings
- Design, control and management of sound broadcasting for acoustic and environmental comfort
- Sound, experience, memory
AudioForum conference will take place at the RAI Amsterdam on 4th February, the day before ISE 2019. AudioForum@ISE is a unique event that will gather the pro audio and installation business communities, with the professionals involved in architectural design, to focus on sound design and sound experience.
Audio Forum at ISE is produced by long standing ISE media partner Connessioni: the 2019 edition of the full-day conference will be organised in collaboration with the Audio Engineering Society (AES). The event is open to all ISE attendees and is focused towards anyone interested in knowing more about the latest audio technologies, sound design and acoustical comfort.
