a collection of work by Nick Mariette: phd student, software developer, ambisonic phonographer, radio producer, new media arts technologist...

I have a particular interest in 3d sound production for speaker arrays and binaural output, which I presently follow through live sound performance, software development and my research on  perceptual evaluation of mobile audio augmented reality.

Previously, I worked for a company called Lake Technology (now Dolby Labs Sydney), managing and engineering spatial audio customer solutions using the Huron digital audio convolution workstation.
