MTI Research Lab
The MTI Research Lab is the premier facility of the Institute for Sonic Creativity. The 155-square metre facility in the Clephan Building was established in 2004 through a £550,000 SRIF2 (Science Research Infrastructure) grant, and has been continually upgraded to meet the developing needs of our researchers.
The Diffusion Studio is a sonically isolated, air-conditioned, floating-construction room for advanced composition and spatial design in up to 32 discrete channels. The AV studio is housed in an isolated, floating-construction room supporting audiovisual work through combined video editing and 5.1 surround mixing and monitoring.
The Sound Art Lab is a flexible sound-making space that can be configured for installation work, diffusion practice, audio-visual presentation and self-directed study. Spacious and naturally lit with comfy seating, this lab also forms the hub of the postgraduate community. The Courtyard Studio is a fully professional recording and mastering studio for stereo or 8 channel projects while the Surround Studio and the Multichannel Studio support 5.1 and 18.1 channel work (any configuration) respectively.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year (other than in exceptional circumstances) and offers a huge range of online resources, all of which can be remotely accessed from anywhere you choose.
The library is run by dedicated staff who offer additional support to students, including help with academic writing, research strategies, literature searching and reference management and assistive technology, and mathematical skills for non-maths students. There is also a Just Ask service for help and advice, available via email or telephone.
