Audio and music programming and applications.
Alex Jones is a researcher focused on music, digital audio and human-computer interaction. Some of his current interests are creative applications of spatial audio, improvising with computers, and liveness in computer music.
Projects that he has worked on include:
ControllAR uses augmented reality techniques to provide visual feedback directly on digital music control surfaces. A research internship at UWE looked at creating an object-based spatialisation system. This led to a collaboration with studio resident Tarim, using the system for a theatre piece, which was the subject of a lunchtime talk. Reflets is a mixed-reality environment for musical performances created at the BIG lab in Bristol. A demonstration and performance was given at Bristol bright night 2015.
He will complete a degree in Audio Music Technology at UWE in summer 2017.
