Doctoral thesis English OPEN
Buckley, Thomas Peter
  • Subject: M1

This paper focuses on the application of multichannel stereophonic sound capture and reproduction from a variety of practical and theoretical approaches. As a product of the research conducted, the author has prepared a series of original compositions as a vehicle to investigate recording and mixing techniques that are encapsulated in both two channel stereophony as well as the surround sound studio. The author has also dealt with the notion of human reactions to reproduced sound considering the practice of psychoacoustics as a tool in moulding specific spatial aesthetics during the stages of production and composition.
