The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) is a newly established centre of excellence, dedicated to the research of music technology. This unique interdisciplinary project has united internationally recognised experts in the areas of musical composition, signal processing, internet technology and digital hardware.
The Centre is established in a purpose-built facility located alongside the engineering departments of Queen’s University.
The centrepiece of SARC, the Sonic Laboratory, provides a unique space for cutting-edge initiatives in the creation and delivery of music and audio. The Sonic Laboratory’s uniqueness is vested in the degree of flexibility it can provide for experiments in 3D sound diffusion and for ground-breaking compositional and performance work within a purpose-built, variable acoustic space.
The Centre was completed in October 2003 and was officially opened by Karlheinz Stockhausen during the Sonorities Festival in April 2004. For further details on the festival, visit the Sonorities site. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to add your name to the Festival mailing list.
