Implications of latency in digital audio environments

The discussion will outline the challenges of interfacing with digital audio technology and the added latency. Latency affects our response time, and affects our musical performance and experience, such as when we build instruments with digital interfaces, design live sound installations with various digital equipment, and collaborate and perform remotely online and over increasingly greater distances.

The panel experts will address technical, cultural, social, musical and neurological implications and present their research and solutions relating to their field expertise as practitioners in sound reinforcement, low latency hardware design, instrument building, remote collaboration tooling, distance-based music performance & improvisation, cultural sciences and the effects of latency on social rhythms, and neurology.

The outcome of the panel will be a wider understanding of how latency, when it related to human interaction, is a recent phenomenon created by digital technology and there are many creative solutions and approaches to what is perceived largely as an inconvenience, not an opportunity.
