Everyday is Spatial 2:

Spatial Audio Conference

University of Gloucestershire

June 15th/16th 2023

Call for Works 2023

Everyday is Spatial’, is an event designed to encourage and explore creativity in the making of audio and immersive experiences. The presentation and discussion of works will enable practitioners to reveal the potentials, challenges and uses for how spatial audio will define the everyday audio experience.

EiS ran for the first time in June 2022 presenting a diverse range of practices centered around applications of spatial audio. With 30+ presentations, performances, and installations from an international submission list, it established the need and demand for practitioners and academics to share their research and interest in this evolving field.

Where once spatial audio might have been experiences that were exclusive in terms of access, and challenging to produce for anyone without specialist tools, we now find an increasing availability of technologies for creative practitioners.

Populating and defining this new ‘soundscape’ is now the question that can start to move beyond the confines of technology access and consider how ideas, concepts and practices afford the potential of new modes of auditory experience at a time when hearing, listening and connecting are vital to global change.

We welcome all practitioners working in this medium to share their experiences and ideas as works and discussion.
