Spatial sound is fundamental to creative audio and music. SoundLab is a physical laboratory space with a loudspeaker array dedicated to high spatial resolution audio housed at City University of Hong Kong since early 2021. SoundLab enables and supports a range of research, artwork, and teaching activities. Co-directed by Dr PerMagnus Lindborg and Dr Ryo Ikeshiro, SoundLab has defined six objectives of research, artwork, teaching, and outreach.
SoundLab is hosted at the School of Creative Media and supported by a Joint Fellowship from the Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media (ACIM) to Lindborg and Ikeshiro (November 2020 – June 2023) and other grants. Over two years of its existence, the SoundTeam has grown to 13 members, including PhD students, faculty, and Research Assistants.
