On Friday January, 9th three presentations and one demonstration were scheduled, given by four instructors from Universities and a company. The first presentation was given by Prof. Dr. Jesko Verhey, chair of the section “experimental audiology” at Magdeburg University. The content covers an introduction into planning, practical questions and evaluation of listening tests. This presentation was used to prepare the listening tests that were performed on Saturday in the Detmold Konzerthaus.

The presentation of Dr. Eckard Mommertz was an introduction in the acoustics of performance spaces. Dr. Mommertz also gave practical examples from his consultancy work at the company Müller-BBM.

The Ph.D. student and ESR Winfried Lachenmayr demonstrated the practical use of room acoustic enhancement systems using the VIVACE system in the Detmold Konzerthaus.

Prof. Dr. Tapio Lokki, head of the Virtual Acoustics Team at Aalto University in Finland, gave an introductory talk on the methodology and results of the “Virual Orchestra-Tour 2012”. During this unique performance a collection of 3D room impulse responses was made in numerous European concert halls. The results enable listeners to listen to several orchestra music performances at arbitrary positions within these halls. During the seminar, a room was available to have an impression of some sound examples.

Dr. Tapio Lokki

On Saturday January, 10th Tapio Lokki conducted a student seminar that consisted of two parts. In the morning several sound sources were installed in the concert house, using real instruments, loudspeakers and focussed virtual sources. The participants of the seminar were evaluate the sound of these sources with respect to various acoustic and aesthetic parameters. The outcome of the listening test was then evaluated and discussed in the second part of the seminar.

In the last time slot at the end of the seminar students and docents were discuss potential perspectives of future research and teaching in the frame of virtual acoustics and the BATWOMAN project.

On the two evenings during the seminar an organ concert was performed on Thursday in the concert house. For the concert of Daria Burlak the room acoustics was adopted for an optimal impression. The second concert was given in the Sommertheater next to the concert house and presents music performed by Leonardo Papa (Viola) and the vocal ensemble MAENNER.
