Virtual Audio and Past Environments: Audio and Acoustics in Heritage Applications
Report on the Methods Network workshop organized by Damian Murphy, University of York (17 March 2008).
A one-day workshop to explore multi-disciplinary approaches to audio, acoustics, and sound design, and to discover how current techniques and research might be applied specifically to heritage and related applications.
Virtual interactive environments, especially in online gaming and similar applications, are now a highly popular sector in the entertainment industry, and offer high quality graphical rendering of virtual worlds and user interaction and immersion. Such graphical virtualization techniques have long been used in the fields of archaeology, history, and heritage as a means to better understand, interact and experience past environments.
