Introduction of a new software instrument for gestural spatial control


Michael Musick
The 9th iteration of an ongoing artistic research project creating “sonic ecosystems”; through interactive performance systems the physical space, in which the performance takes place, is integrated into the performance.

The evening will feature an 8.2 channel sound system for which the pieces were developed or adapted to. The different composers explore aesthetics and techniques for spatialization. Listening will be practiced as a phenomenological activity: the listener immersed in inner spaces; distance and continuity; sound as intersubjective space. A central question thereby is how to dramatize the distinctions between interior, exterior, and the interior beyond the exterior space.

Guest presenters and performers are invited to bring a range of approaches to spatial sound and to make use of the Temporary multi-channel sound setup.
