Scott's Research Output

Scott presented his concept for a real-time DAW Collaboration Framework (DCF) at the Australasian Computer Music Conference (ACMC) in 2018. The conference, Reflecting Worlds: The Promise and Limitations of Mimesis in Electronic Music, was held at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), Perth, Australia.

In 2019, Scott travelled to Norway to deliver his paper, presenting a proof-of-concept prototype of the DCF, at the Web Audio Conference (WAC). The conference, Diversity in Web Audio, was held in Trondheim at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and gave Scott the opportunity to showcase the DCF's use of Web MIDI and WebRTC protocols.

 

In 2020, amidst the onset of COVID-19 restrictions in Australia, Scott delivered a video that presented the early findings of his interviews with Australian professional studio and live audio engineers and mixers. The presentation was given online for that year's ACMC, Inclusion, and focused on the audio engineers'/mixers' impressions of and requirements for collaborative online DAW-based audio mixing with clients.

Scott's work was published in the June 2021 issue of the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society (Vol. 69 Issue 6) as an article/technical paper on the design of the DCF and an evaluation of its performance when utilising several network connection architectures and conditions. The article showed that the DCF could accommodate up to 30 simultaneous online participants using typical residential VDSL Internet bandwidths.

Later this year (2022) Chroma, the journal of the Australasian Computer Music Association, will be publishing Scott's article on the complete findings of the interviews he conducted in 2020. In June, Scott will be travelling to Sweden to present the latest prototype of the DCF at the Innovation in Music Conference (IMC). To be held at the Royal Academy of Music (KMH) in Stockholm, Scott will demonstrate real-time multiparty audio mixing collaboration between Sweden and Australia.
