Required Preliminary Competencies

For the overall research strategy to yield the desired results it has to be ascertained that all participants share a comparable and sufficient level of sound-related competence. While not required for the initial stage, later development stages require some basic knowledge of sound editing and multitrack composition with simple effects. Here we focus on a range of methods that originate in tape-based sound editing and basic signal processing methods, which can be understood and reproduced with relative ease. And, as we are also dealing with functional prototypes, another precondition is a basic knowledge of electronics and programming.
