METALAB SAV+R RESEARCH PROJECT
Sound Navigation in the Montreal Symphony Orchestra
• • • • •
Metalab, the SAT’s R&D lab, presents the progress of its latest research project on sound spatialization, which includes the prototyping of immersive navigation experiences in a concert performed by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra.
This video contains a navigation demonstration in a virtual reproduction of the Montreal Maison Symphonique, where the concert has been recorded. The Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6, performed by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Kent Nagano, was presented in February 2020.
The prototypes are produced for research purposes, to demonstrate and evaluate navigation methods in a musical field with six degrees of freedom (6DoF), i.e. total freedom of movement and direction in the space.
6DoF recording and navigation team for the SAT SAV+R research project: Zack Settel, Jean-Yves Munch, Carl Talbot and Nicolas Bouillot. Thanks to Luc Martinez for his support during the ideation phase of the project.
This project is financially supported by the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation.
