Troyganic, 132 Kingsland Road, London

New digital media is very much about dynamic forms. We are familiar
with video graphics in games, and the process by which worlds and characters
are conceived and created. But what about dynamic
sounding objects and music? In this talk Andy focuses on the research and
development process behind computational sound. How are sounds analysed,
modelled and recreated in a runtime environment? What are the implications
for games, computer animated film and mobile interactive media? A slide
show and audio demonstration will be followed by Q&A session.
