Where: Lecture Theatre B, James Clerk Maxwell Building, Kings Buildings, University of Edinburgh

Seminar Title

Sonic interaction design for cultural heritage

Seminar Speaker

Stefania Serafin (Aalborg University, Copenhagen, Denmark)

Seminar Abstract

Sonic interaction design is a relatively novel discipline at the intersection of interaction design and sound and music computing. In this talk I will present several examples of the use of sonic interaction design for reconstructing unusual musical instruments recreating their sonorities using physics based sound models, as well as reconstructing their physical interface using modern fabrication techniques and sensors technologies.
