Immersive Media Lab

Richard King and Wieslaw Woczcyk in one of McGill's sound recording labs

The Immersive Media Lab within the Department of Music Research at the Schulich School of Music is being developed for 3D immersive audio research and production within the McGill Sound Recording Studios.


Co-Directors: Richard King and Wieslaw Woszczyk
