    Keynote 1: Gregor Zielinsky

    Gregor Zielinsky looks back to a long time of Stereo recordings with DGG. He also did a lot of 5.1 recordings, but there was never such an experience like 3D Audio recording. The emotional aspect of 3D is amazing. And we can realize this by the developments of the past years. Including todays ICSA of course. The keynote will look a the musical, emotional and recording technique aspects of 3D recording. Gregor will have a look at Celibidaches „Musical Phenomenologie“, which has a lot of things to do with 3D recording. Also, some physical aspects of room acoustics will be shown, that relate to immersive recording. Recording aspects from Beethoven to Pink Floyd will be discussed. And we will see, what advantages 3D recording has. Which is true for as well the producers, but also for the consumers. We will also see a brief history of 3D recording, which astonishingly goes back to the 1970s. Immersive Audio has a lot of chances and possibilities. But there are always chance of „unappropriate“ use of 3D, as it is possible with any technique. Alls these aspects will be shown in the keynote and can be discussed after the presentation.

    Keynote 2: David Griesinger: Learning to Listen to Headphones

    David Griesinger about his keynote: The author has been recording live music, testing audio equipment, and enjoying sound with headphones for more than sixty years. We have tried dynamic, piezoelectric, and electrostatic phones, but none of them could reproduce the timbre of a carefully equalized loudspeaker array. In this talk we will present some of the experiences that led to the realization that the resonances that the concha and ear canals create are individual in frequency, directionally dependent, and modified in individual ways by headphones. In-head localization and inaccurate timbre results. Measuring HRTF functions at the blocked ear canal ignores these resonances. To hear realistic sound, or to reproduce binaural recordings, we must individually match a headphone to our own ears. We have found a simple, non-invasive method to match the frequency response at the eardrum from a pair of headphones to the frequency response at the eardrum from a frontal loudspeaker. The result is frontal localization without head tracking and accurate timbre. A research version of our Windows app is available on our website, and there is a YouTube video showing how to use it. We have recently developed simple to use versions of the app for AAX and VST3 systems. We will demonstrate these apps informally at this conference and in an AVID booth at the AES conference in New York.

    Walk to Church Concert

    Please meet us in the foyer of the Helmholtz building. We then walk together to the church where the organ concert will take place. This concert is a highlight, it is especially organized for the occasion. Hans-Jürgen Freitag, Cantor of St. Jakobus church in Ilmenau, on September 27 is conducting compositions for choir, recorder, harpsichord, and the large Walcker organ. The ensemble will perform the contemplative piece “Golgotha” by contemporary composer Günther Berger alongside works by J. S. Bach. Berger links the events in the Passion of Jesus with a lament for the Shoah, a topic which he has revisited, almost obsessively, time and again. This musical rendition of the subject, particularly the instrumental, transcends conventional expectations of music for recorder and organ. The audience is sure to leave with an indelible memory of the concert.
