Spatial sound has long been a topic of interest in electro-acoustic
music. With continual technical advancements of methods to achieve
spatialisation of sound, an increase in the realisation of spatial
sound ideas can be achieved, while concurrently giving birth to new
concepts in this area. Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) provides a
compelling method, as it excels in creating a clear localisation of
a virtual sound source for a large listening area. This book gives
an overview of spatial techniques in electro-acoustic music and how
WFS fits into this tradition. It describes a framework of software
for WFS and gives a description of perspectives on WFS from an
electro-acoustic composer's viewpoint. In the second half of the
book a method is proposed for the reproduction of arbitrarily
shaped objects emitting sound, using WFS. The mathematics and the
implementation aspects are described, after which the method is
validated with computed examples and listening tests. The book's
target audience consists of artists wanting to learn about sound
spatialisation using WFS, as well as students and scientific
researchers in computational acoustics.
