AES Technical Papers Co-Chairs Veronique Larcher and Rob Maher report that Alastair Moore of the University of York will present his Student Technical Papers Award-winning, “An Initial Validation of Individualized Crosstalk Cancellation Filters for Binaural Perceptual Experiments," at Session P14, Listening Tests & Psychoacoustics, Saturday Oct. 4, 9AM – noon.
Born in 1983 in Glasgow, Mr. Moore attended Tinto Primary School and the High School of Glasgow. In 2001 he began a Master of Engineering degree in Electronic Engineering with Music Technology Systems at the University of York. For his Masters project, he spent five months at the Department of Speech, Music and Hearing, KTH, Stockholm.
