The reverberation time in our 1:12 scale model compared to the full scale replica at Maryhill, USA
To make the video “Santa does Architectural Acoustics” I used a process called auralisation to virtually place him into the oil tank that has the World record reverberation time. As you can see from the photo below, he would have been too plump to fit down the access pipes, which are behind him. Auralisation is… Continue reading How Santa tested the acoustics in the Inchindown Oil Depot
Did the first large scale scientific test of the theory that acoustics affected where palaeolithic cave ‘art’ was painted, support the hypothesis? The lead author on the paper explains.
Here is another 360 video recorded with spatial audio – so reach for your headphones. The heavy reverberation creates some interesting aural effects, some of them probably due to how YouTube creates the binaural rendering and are not real. So I’ve done an anechoic chamber in 360 video, and now a reverberant space. What next?
