Sprint 4 - DSP & 3D Audio

I needed to deviate off plan a little in Sprint 4 and spend time researching native audio and DSP in Unity and review solutions for 3D Sound. Ultimately, given the wide range of skills required to create a complete immersive experience of any size, I decided this would be a smart focus for future projects.

Sprint 2 - Install & Configure

The focus for Sprint 2 was to get a basic “hello world” example running on my Oculus Quest. This type of program is normally trivial but it fleshes out correct configuration of the hardware and software environment, laying the foundations for more interesting projects further down the line and getting confidence with the tooling.

Sprint 3 - Applied Learning

I started Sprint 3 keen to build something and revisited the creative coding tutorial in Unity recommended by David Johnston at the beginning of the project. The thing that initially struck me about this tutorial is how it stripped back the Unity ceremony and “complexity”, the latter is actually aimed at simplifying the process for game devs but can be daunting for a new user with so many options available. The focus here is on pixels and a canvas, taking you a little closer to the metal which aligns with previous experience of Open Frameworks and Processing.

Hello Immersive World!

I’m currently undertaking a research & development project investigating the use of XR technologies to create an immersive art installation.

XR Development Tools

I nearly left the goodship Apple when they seemed incapable of releasing a laptop that was an actual worthwhile upgrade from my previous model. They redeemed themselves at the 11th hour upon release of the Macbook Pro 16,1 in 2019.

Call & Response Collaboration

We’ve collaborated with Call & Response Studios on many occasions over the years, most recently mixing spatial audio productions at their glorious 360° listening space. The 32.3 ambisonic / 9.1.4 Atmos Genelec monitoring system is currently situated amongst the vibrant artist studios in Somerset House.
