Body-controlled sound field manipulation as a performance practice

Spatial composition represents a key aspect of contemporary acousmatic and computer music. The history of spatial composition practice has shown many different approaches of composition and performance tools, instruments and interfaces. Furthermore, current developments and the increasing availability of virtual/augmented reality systems (XR) extend the possibilities in terms of sound rendering engines as well as environments and tools for creation and experience. In contrast to systems controlling parameters of simulated sound fields and virtual sound sources, we present an approach of XR-based and real-time body-controlled (motion and biofeedback sensors) sound field manipulation in the spatial domain. The approach can be applied not only to simulated sound fields but also to recorded ones and reproduced with various spatial rendering procedures.
