Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

The concept of embedded acoustic systems for diffusing spatial audio is considered. This paradigm is enabled by advancements in floating-point hardware on inexpensive embedded Linux systems. Examples are presented using line array configurations for electroacoustic music and for making interactive kiosk and poster systems.
