The PhD project consists of assisting in the creation of a real-time room acoustic simulator for use with musicians, taking into account the musicians movements and the impact of dynamic source directivity. The simulator will be put into use for studying the impact of room acoustics on musicians playing, focusing on comparisons between Baroque chamber music venues and modern day equivalents. The thesis work will contribute to the research and documentation of pertinent venues, acoustic measurements of existing venues, and the creation of ecologically valid geometrical acoustics models of on these venues. The thesis will comprise a series of perceptual studies examining the impact of acoustic variations on playing, in the context of historically informed performance methods.

Applications will be treated on a rolling basis from 1-July until the position is filled.

Offer Requirements

Skills/Qualifications

The candidate, with a master’s degree in acoustics or related fields to the subject, will need the skills to work at the intersection of room acoustic modelling, psychoacoustics, and archeological acoustics (archeoacoustics). An interest/passion for history and music be an additional asset. The ability to work independantly as well as part of a group is fundamental to a successful candidate. Motivation, self-discipline, and maturity are needed for this highly interdisciplinary and collaborative project.
