today I just found out by surprise that my website's web-host service has shut down for good. What a bummer.

A new spatial audio book is about to appear: The Technology of Binaural Listening, edited by Jens Blauert.
The book includes contributions from 15 research laboratories in Europe and in the US which are part of the research initiative “Aural Assessment by Means of Binaural Algorithm” (AABBA). The table of content looks really exciting and I hope to get a printed version as soon as possible.
From the description:
This book treats the topic of sound field synthesis with a focus on serving human listeners though the approach can be also exploited in other areas such as underwater acoustics or ultrasonics. The author derives a fundamental formulation based on standard integral equations and the single-layer potential approach is identified as a useful tool in order to derive a general solution. He also proposes extensions to the single-layer potential approach which allow for a derivation of solutions for non-enclosing distributions of secondary sources such as circular, planar, and linear ones. Based on above described formulation it is shown that the two established analytic approaches of Wave Field Synthesis and Near-field Compensated Higher Order Ambisonics constitute specific solutions to the general problem which are covered by the single-layer potential solution and its extensions. The consequences spatial discretization are analyzed in detail for all elementary geometries of secondary source distributions and applications such as the synthesis of the sound field of moving virtual sound sources, focused virtual sound sources, and virtual sound sources with complex radiation properties are discussed.
Another gem is the accompanied website, where Jens provides the Matlab source code for all Matlab figures used in this book – bravo Jens.
Welcome to my website. After several years of procrastinating, I finally managed to get a domain and set this up.
After figuring out how wordpress works, I am planning to use this site for documenting my research …. stay tuned.
And no, I am not at facebook, but a lot of my doppelgängers are.
