WasP software project

WasP is an interactive performance environment for multichannel spatial soundscape composition, curation and design.

WasP was developed at RMIT University’s SIAL Sound Studios as part of a Design Research Institute funded pilot. The pilot produced strategies to support the composition and curation of complex spatial works over publicly installed soundscape systems.

Software features

  • scalable client/server playback system
  • algorithmically generated data sets for controlling playback speed, volume and spatialisation routines
  • automated control techniques
  • integrated sound spatialisation modules
  • methods for soundscape creation and soundscape curation.
