Sensational festival music from your cellphone
Thu, 17/02/2011 - 16:00
The Danish Sound Technology Network's innovation project ‘Event Mobile’ was echoed in the New Scientist Magazine article “Sensational festival music, from your cellphone”, issue 2800, p. 23 on Feb. 19, 2011.
The ‘Event Mobile’ project is carried out by DTU Informatics, CrossOver Global, and Rhode & Schwarz and develops augmented sound experience at music festivals using mobile phones. At the 15th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces (IUI2011) this week Jacob Eg Larsen and Arkadiusz Stopczynski , DTU Informatics, presented a scientific work about the use of mobile phones to augment the participants' sound experience based on experiments carried out at the Nibe music festival in Denmark.
The experiments involved nineteen test participants that used a mobile phone with a headset playing back sound received over FM from the PA audio mixer system. Based on the location of the participant (distance to the stage) a delay was estimated and introduced to the playback on the mobile phone in order to align the sound in the headset with that from the on-stage speakers. The paper reports findings from an initial "in-the-wild" experiments augmenting the sound experience at two concerts at this music festival.
