Audio Engineering Society Conference Engineering Brief Presentation

I'm presenting an engineering brief at AES New York 2017 during Spatial Audio Session. Current list of presentations during this session can be found here.

EB06-3 Audio Localization Method for VR Application
Audio localization is a crucial component in the Virtual Reality (VR) projects as it contributes to a more realistic VR experience to the users. In this paper a method to implement localized audio that is synced with user’s head movement is discussed. The goal is to process an audio signal real-time to represent three-dimensional soundscape. This paper introduces a mathematical concept, acoustic models, and audio processing that can be applied for general VR audio development. It also provides a detailed overview of an Oculus Rift- MAX/MSP demo.

Mathematics for VR Audio Design (NYC Media Lab Summit 2017)
Sep
29
4:00 PM16:00

Mathematics for VR Audio Design (NYC Media Lab Summit 2017)

  • Columbia University Mudd Building Room 214 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This workshop covers essential mathematical knowledge regarding audio design for VR application. It will discuss quaternion algebra and mathematical modeling for the acoustics. Quaternion algebra is a mathematical concept that is common in VR development, and this workshop will teach the concept of quaternion and its practical application in VR coding for vector rotation. Ideas and methodology for mathematical model that creates three-dimensional auditory scene will be discussed, along with practical implementation using HRIR-convolved audio files. The workshop will be demonstrated using music software MAX/MSP and python, although methods discussed can be more generally applied to other platforms. This workshop is in partnership with NYC Media Lab.

Registration is required via Eventbrite.

Advertising Week - Tech Xperience Demo

  • 4 Times Square New York (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I collaborated with Smita Sen on an art installation, Bivalvia: Into the Shell. It is a 3D-printed seashell-shaped headdress which I designed audio for. We are presenting the prototype in Advertising Week's Tech Xperience! Find us in Times Square.

Film Screening

Films and fun times. Come hang out, have drinks, and watch Joowon, Brianna, and Smita's adventures in film!

<Light>
In the city that never sleeps, how do we dream? In the dimly lit subways and the starless sky, are the city lights enough to guide our way forward?
Light is an experimental exploration of following dreams in the city. With poetry, original music, and visuals by Joowon Park and Smita Sen.

<Friends>
There are only forty-one days left at Columbia University for five college seniors. "Friends" is a documentary that reflects on their pasts, present, and (undetermined) futures. Video produced by Brianna Brown.
