Suiter, W. & Cheng, E. "Listening Chairs: Personal Acoustic Space in Public Places." Australasian Computer Music Conference. Fitzroy, Victoria: Australasian Computer Music Association, 2008. 85-90.


Creation of a personal acoustic space for listeners of audio works in a public venue, which encourages the listener to focus and engage with the musical work, is the primary goal of this collaboration. Considering the context of this artificially created acoustic space various subsidiary goals are also important. These include visual aesthetics, as well as the audio capacity of the employed technology, while considering the portability of the equipment and the overall cost.
