Designing Spatial Sound: Adapting Contemporary Screen Sound Design Practices for Virtual Reality

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperConference paper

Abstract

The introduction of 360º film and Virtual Reality (VR) has meant practitioners have had to adapt to a multitude of new platforms and specifications, with no existing pathways or working methodologies. VR audio is continually being redefined, with contemporary film sound practices having to adapt to new forms of spatialisation and headphone delivery. The variations in platforms also necessitates different delivery requirements, with the audio often a secondary consideration. This paper will examine the current state of sound for virtual reality and discuss sound design for VR from a creative practice perspective.
