DURHAM, N.C. — Sound will literally wash over you during a special spatial sound exhibit at the Durham Armory during Moogfest this week.
A3 (Audio Cubed) will host this 360-degree sound experience starting Thursday afternoon. Featuring more than 20 independent audio sources, the sound is designed to come from every angle throughout each performance.
A3 has been working with Meyer Sound and Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts and Technology for the project.
“The music is going to be all around you. It is going to be moving. You might hear things coming on one way or from behind you,” Virginia Tech grad student Ryan McHugh said. “This is one of the largest scale spatial audio performances that has been done in the states.”
The University Libraries at Virginia Tech is teaming up with Blacksburg Middle School to create a virtual reality laboratory and integrate virtual reality technology into the middle school learning experience.
Jonathan Bradley, the innovative technologies coordinator for learning environments at the University Libraries, is assisting in the creation of this pilot installation to spark a larger initiative to bring virtual reality to all Montgomery County public middle schools.
April 30 marked the sixth annual ICAT Creativity and Innovation Day. The day celebrates the nexus of science, engineering, arts, and design. Exhibitors from all over campus and across the state displayed their projects at the Moss Arts Center. The theme of the 2018 ICAT Creativity and Innovation Day was Trace, as in to find or discover by investigation, to take a particular path or route, an indication of the existence of something, palimpsest, and a small road.
Maria Jernigan, a triple major from Virginia Beach, Virginia, thinks about how virtual reality could enhance high school learning. She absently taps an old-fashioned fountain pen against her notebook as she outlines a project that transports students to Washington, D.C., and Beijing to explore political issues that affect both the United States and China. She hopes the technology will motivate students to solve global issues through collaboration.
