Douglas is passionate about digital signal processing algorithms for audio analysis, processing and synthesis. He also examines novel interfaces and methodologies for audiovisual performance.
Douglas joined ARU in 1997 after completing his PhD on 'Analysis and Resynthesis of Polyphonic Music' at Durham University. His interests span a range of applications of digital technology to creative arts, particularly polyphonic music transcription and novel composition methodologies. He has also worked as a VJ, and pursues his interest in experimental video techniques. Recently he has performed using his own software for synthesis of vector graphics.
Digital signal processing for music, audiovisual performance software and hardware.
