The Sonic Arts Research Centre (SARC) is a unique interdisciplinary facility which unites internationally recognised experts in the fields of musical composition, signal processing, Human Computer Interaction and auditory perception. The Centre is established in a purpose-built facility located alongside the engineering departments of Queen’s University Belfast. SARC’s centrepiece, the Sonic Laboratory http://www.sarc.qub.ac.uk/sites/sarc/AboutUs/TheSARCBuildingandFacilities/TheSonicLab/, 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.
SARC, was officially opened by Karlheinz Stockhausen during the Sonorities Festival in April 2004. The Centre, which is now one of the biggest centres of its kind in the world, supports the work of a community of sixty academics, visiting researchers and composers, and research students.
