Jack Kelly is a Ph.D. candidate and researcher in the sound recording area of the department of music research at McGill University. His doctoral research focuses on the influence of three-dimensional convolution reverberation tools on the perception of presence and other spatial attributes in immersive music reproduction. His studies explore both channel-based and ambisonic approaches to spatial impulse response measurement, in an effort to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that form the sensation of ‘being there’ in virtual musical experiences. He has presented research at AES conferences in New York City, Berlin, and Tokyo. Jack has been an active classical recording engineer since 2013. He received an M.mus in sound recording (Tonmeister program) from McGill (2016). His interest in the field grew from his background in composition and performance, developed during his time at Concordia University where he received a BFA in Electroacoustic Studies (2012).
