Field recording of natuaral sound fields
I am working on research on the correspondence between visual flow (the change in perspective resulting from changes view direction and point of view) and audible changes in the sound field that originates in view direction. The multimodal coupling between image scope and sound field, both subject to dynamic change when the observer is in motion, are important orientation cues in remote perception, where an observer controls a camera in the distance or in a VR environment. I am hoping to make field recordings of directed ambient sound sources in nature such as wind, water, and bird sounds that are emitted across a broad field from a direction, but not from a single point sound source and experiment with integrating the sound recordings into virtual walk-throughs to experiment with synchronization/mis-synchronization between flow in the the audio field and flow in the VR image.
