Leveraging motion and conceptual frameworks of sound as a novel means of sound design in extended reality

Extended Reality (XR) technology presents a wealth of new opportunities and challenges to sound design. Whilst existing knowledge and best-practice can translate readily across, XR realises several specific features and qualities that warrant more focussed attention. This chapter makes the case for considering the potential of human motion, a central point of added value in the affordances of XR. Motion tracking in virtual, augmented and mixed-reality systems affords increasingly naturalistic means of human-computer interaction but, crucially for sound designers, also presents a wealth of prospects for designing sound within XR that draws deeper connection between the user and the system.
