The new windows from the 2020 Acoustic Advent run by @trevor_cox @salfordacoustic
Searching (in vain) for whispering gallery effects in Stonehenge. Pretty FDTD simulations and measurements in our Acoustic Scale Model of Stonehenge.
An introduction to a new experiment looking at how we respond to artificial voices from BBC R&D and University of Salford.
The Salford Acoustics’ SpatialPodcast plug-in is designed for podcasters wishing to add more dimensional sound to their recordings.
Did the circle of stones cause focussing and discrete echoes within Stonehenge.

Details on the measurement equipment and analysis process for the 1:12 scale model of Stonehenge
How was it built? Over the last 18 months I’ve been constructing a 1:12 scale model of Stonehenge. I want to better understand the ancient acoustics within the circle. By creating Stonehenge ‘Lego’ I can test how the site would have sounded in it’s various historic configurations. With so many stones displaced or missing in… Continue reading An Acoustic Scale Model of Stonehenge
A strange acoustic created by an unusual tunnel shape.
The uncanny valley: does it happen with voices? While images of near-human robots can be creepy, the same thing doesn’t seem to happen from disembodied voices.
