|Welcome to this site,
focusing on an advanced consulting research project undertaken to
simulate and auralize the acoustics of the 1,200-seat concert hall in
the new Experimental Media and
Performing Arts Center at Rensselaer. Here you will find a
description of the project, the simulation & auralization methods
used to effect a solution, and an online binaural walkthrough of the

|About the Project
Goals of the simulation and auralization project and the structure of the eMPAC building.
Learn about the new simulation methods developed for the project and their application to high-resolution auralization.
Explore the Ambisonics rendering techniques used in preparing the auralizations and in the original presentation of the sounds using a multichannel loudspeaker array.
