“Deadline for Articles: 17. March 2014

We are happy to accept articles for the peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary
Yearbook of Immersive Media (Jahrbuch immersiver Medien). The 2014 issue
is entitled „Sounds, Music & Soundscapes“.

Research on forms of media experience tend to concentrate on visuals.
Owing to this, mainly pictorial forms such as panoramas, stereoscopic 3D
media, dome projections or the HMD are treated as scenarios of
immersion. This focus on visual immersion is even apparent when the
discourse focusses on multimodal forms of media such as the film or the
video game. Yet it is not just the visual parameters that allow an
immersive experience. Sergei Eisenstein, for instance, stressed that a
fusion of film and audience can only succeed through sound, and he did
this some years before his emphatic article about stereoscopic Raumfilm.
In this regard, he wrote of an acoustic embrace of the space of the
cinema by Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, to immerse the audience
completely into the sonic world of a Wagnerian orchestra. This relevance
of acoustics for the creation of immersive and atmospheric phenomena can
be extended in a variety of media types and space types, be it the
emotional mood of an empty space, be it the importance of the soundscape
for the experience of a film or the significance of music for the
preservation of the flow-experience in a video game.

The yearbook of immersive media is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary
publication aimed at an international academic readership. The Yearbook
invites to send articles dealing with themes like music, sound studies,
sound effects, sound design, film, virtual reality, game studies etc.
applied to the concept of acoustic immersion and atmospheres.

Submitted articles must be original contributions that engage with
recent studies dealing with immersive theory and practice, the
production and reception of atmospheres, or the concept of presence.
Contributions should be 5000 to 8000 words in length. Please send an
abstract, a brief biographical information and contact details and your
article to Dr. Patrick Rupert-Kruse via: immersive-medien@fh-kiel.de.
The deadline for articles is the 17. March 2014. A style sheet can be
obtained through our website at www.immersive-medien.de.”
