Reproduced Sound 2023

Audio accessibility – The ingredients for success

The Electro-Acoustics Group Committee of the Institute of Acoustics is pleased to announce Reproduced Sound 2023: Audio accessibility – The ingredients for success. The conference will be held in Bristol on 14 – 16 November 2023.

The conference programme can be viewed here.

Now in its 39th year, the conference represents the cutting edge of modern audio and acoustics in an informal environment that allows consultants, manufacturers, contractors, end users, academics, and students to mingle and share insights and information.

Registration is available at the IOA’s event website.


Angelo Farina

Professor Angelo Farina is this year’s recipient of the Peter Barnett Memorial Award, for his lifelong contributions to the fields of acoustics and audio, through pioneering research and education.

He has worked at the cutting edge of computer-based acoustical measurements for both acoustic and electroacoustic testing. This has led to the development of a number of powerful software packages for modelling as well as signal processing and analysis.

Professor Farina will not be able to attend the conference but, in absentia, a summary of his work will be given by the committee chair.


Jamie Angus

Professor Jamie Angus will be presented with an Honorary Fellowship to the Institute of Acoustics for her significant contributions to the field of electroacoustics during her career, both in research and education.

Jamie will be in attendance to accept the fellowship and deliver her presentation: “A life electroacoustic: From Altec to Array Loudspeakers and AI; A time of change.”



Reproduced Sound 2023’s Tuesday evening session will begin with an introduction to Audioscenic’s technology, where then delegates will then be able to book to attend the two one-to-one demonstrations. Light refreshments will be available in the bar area.

Audioscenic will bring two devices powered by their user-adaptive spatial audio technology to Reproduced Sound 2023: A Razer Leviathan V2 Pro soundbar and a laptop integrated with their technology. The Audioscenic team will be present on Tuesday evening giving delegates an opportunity to listen to the latest implementation of their technology.

This workshop is sponsored by UKAN+.


Mud Dock Cafe

This year’s conference reception and dinner location will take place at Mud Dock Cafe, an iconic cafe set in an old harbourside building, located at The Grove, Bristol (walking distance from The Bristol Hotel).


Buddy Scheme

Attending a conference for the first time or as a new member of a scientific community could feel daunting. To offer support and to aid a smooth integration, we have a buddy scheme at the Reproduced Sound 2023 conference.

The buddy scheme is an informal support and mentoring initiative aimed at attendees who are new to Reproduced Sound. Delegates will be able to recognise “Buddies” by their red badges.

Buddies can answer questions, provide information about the conference and help with general integration into the community.

The buddy scheme is open to all interested attendees. We hope that this scheme provides a great opportunity to meet new people and hope that it makes our conference an enjoyable experience.
