Audio Mostly 2023
  This project's aim is to host the Audio Mostly conference 2023 here at Edinburgh Napier University (

Conference Theme:
Embodied Sound in the Virtual

Conference Abstract:
Sound design can play a crucial role in supporting immersive experiences and fostering seamless ‘natural’ embodied interactions with the virtual and real world. Interactions with the virtual are fostered through the continuous development of devices (wearables and hearables) and their applications in interactive experiences (games, exhibitions, installations, tours, etc.). Although technologies enable interaction with the virtual through bodily gestures, there is a paucity of auditory feedback to fully support these interactions at the intersection between the real and virtual. We invite contributions at the intersection of sound design and embodied interactions in virtual environments (AR/VR/MR/XR).
