Stratigraphical sound in 4D space

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    This paper describes a framework to facilitate the authoring of sound with spatio-temporal relativity in virtual or augmented environments. It is based upon the premise that the interactor with the environment creates their own individual interpretation of 'narrative' as a result of their movement through the space, accumulating fragments of stimuli or content to create meaning. Inspiration is gained from the actions of the archaeologist, using stratigraphy as a recording practice that records spacio-temporal paradigms. As the author of a spatialised soundscape composes a database of narrative fragments and clues for the user to find, the paper proposes a distinct design process that reverses the excavation procedure, and re-imagines stratigraphical layers as phases of sound in the present tense.
