A Methodology for Virtualizing Complex Sound Sources into 6DoF Recordings
Paper accepted to the 2020 International Computer Music Conference. Outlines an algorithm for representing complex sound sources in 6DoF audio experiences, including the representation of statistical directivity information. Describes two recordings made as proofs-of-concept.

Technology on Stage
Research done at Ball State University, presented at the Indiana Music Educator’s Association 2020 conference poster session. Examines the attitudes of classical musicians towards the use of technology as a performative element during concerts.
Speaker Delays and Wide Speakers
It is common practice to use multiple layers of speakers when dealing with larger spaces. There will often be a main speaker array, and the several fill (or “delay”) speakers. When using these delay speakers, it is standard to add a time delay to the audio feed leading to those speakers to account for the propagation of sound throughout the space and attempt to minimize any perceptible echo and phase interference.
What happens though when your speakers are far to the outsides of your audience
