Project Title 

 3D 5G Immersive audio in outdoor heritage contexts

Background & Summary of Project

I am a sound artist, field recordist and musician with an MA in Sound Arts from LCC; working in the areas of heritage, conservation and acoustic ecology, with a particular interest in ‘buildings at risk’. My PhD project addresses audience engagement in urban outdoor heritage through the use of 3D immersive locative audio. The site-specific prototype soundscape will be created in Brunswick Square, Hove, using 5G and GPS location for precise sound activation, as the audience navigates through the virtual sound map in the square. The audio content involved will contain recordings of music, foley, conversation, and oral accounts, to captivate the audience in the local history.
