Experimental Virtual Archeological-Acoustics: Influence of performance spaces on Historically Informed Performance

PhD position
3 years

We have an urgent funding opportunity for a PhD on interactive room-acoustic simulations to study the impact of acoustics on performance, in the context of Baroque chamber music.

The PhD project consists of assisting in the creation of a real-time room acoustic simulator for use with musicians, taking into account the musicians movements and the impact of dynamic source directivity. The simulator will be put into use for studying the impact of room acoustics on musicians playing, focusing on comparisons between Baroque chamber music venues and modern day equivalents. The thesis work will contribute to the research and documentation of pertinent venues, acoustic measurements of existing venues, and the creation of ecologically valid geometrical acoustics models of on these venues. The thesis will comprise a series of perceptual studies examining the impact of acoustic variations on playing, in the context of historically informed performance methods.
