Hi, my name is Etienne. I’m locked in the pursuit of wisdom. I read, and subscribe to, the great 17th-century philosopher Benedict Spinoza. I’ve recently completed a PhD (at the University of Wollongong) on the relationship between music and spatial verisimilitude (the illusion of being real). I lecture in the Media arts at UOW, and support myself and my family by engaging in a range of work.
My way of understanding the world is to challenge it. Often I write things which appear critical, but really I’m just trying to see how it stands up.
I created Ambisonia.com, now hosted and maintained at the University of York (and previously, SoundOfSpace.com).
