  ‘Vowel matching’ in chorus singing
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modifying vowels is a common technique employed by singers when singing as a group to maximise the blended quality of the sound. Whilst there is natural variation of vowels between speakers and singers, a conscious effort is made to match the quality of vowels between singers.
  Audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent developments in low cost VR displays have led to a resurgence of research into binaural 3-D audio. Whilst a good 3-D audio experience can be given using the state of the art technologies, there are still many problems to be solved.
  Augmented a shared environment to support creativity
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof J A Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University’s "immersive demonstration space" provides surround video and sound in a meeting-room environment. This research project is to determine how best to enhance and use the space to support collaborative design and creativity.
  Auralisation in digital heritage
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphical virtualization techniques have been used for some time in the fields of archaeology, history, and heritage, offering better understanding and experience of past environments while also facilitating more effective user interaction.
  Improvements in headphone based 3-D audio using adaptive binaural signal processing and robust head-tracking
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design of immersive binaural surround systems requires an understanding of the perceptual cues for sound source localisation. Any source at a given angle of incidence to the head will create subtle time and level difference cues at the ears and is subject to spectral shaping due to the pinnae.
  Influence of listener movement on tonality and spatial quality in adaptive immersive surround sound systems
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst there is a significant body of work that focuses on the spatial quality and tonality of immersive surround sound systems for a sweet spot position, these qualities under a dynamic listening scenario (i.e.
  Interactive spatial audio rendering
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in measuring the acoustic characteristics of concert halls and opera houses are leading to standardized methods of impulse response capture for a wide variety of auralisation applications, including many surround-sound formats.
  Soundfield analysis and synthesis using higher order ambisonics
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr G Kearney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ambisonics is a spatial audio capture and reproduction system that has been utilised since the 1970’s, primarily for music reproduction, but has of late gained significant interest in broadcast, gaming and interactive immersive video frameworks.
  Soundscape analysis and auralisation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditional research in auralisation focuses on the development of sound propagation and rendering algorithms for bounded geometries – that is, rooms, halls or any form of enclosed space.
  The role of vibrato in the aesthetic of blended choral singing
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr H Daffern
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental aspect of good choral singing identified by performers, directors, critics and theorists is the concept of blend. Blend is a term that has essentially come to encompass all aspects of singing that lead to a sound in which no one voice is distinguishable from another.
