Immersion and Control of Sonic Content
The research and the evolutions with respect to sound have extended the spatio-temporal limits. Four leading experts will share with us their reflections and the latest advances regarding performance and sound spaces. Each of them will discuss their perspectives on the impacts and implications the new developments will have for the public.
Tuesday May 27
5:30 to 9:30 pm, at the SAT

SOUND – COLOUR :: THE SOMATIC AND DIGITAL IN AUDIO-VISUAL PERFORMANCES
Alexandre Burton will talk about the Cubing audiovisual performance. which explores musical gestures through the relationship between colour and sound … it’s a performance during which the public directly follows the creative process.
Alexandre Burton – Composer, digital instrument-maker, researcher, Artificiel
SOUND – SPACE :: THE MEDIUM IS THE SPACE
Robert Normandeau will talk about his research into virtual aspects of the acoustic medium. Immersion creates the spatialization of timbre: the whole spectra is found only virtually in the space of the concert hall. Each point of projected sound represents only a part of the ensemble.
Robert Normandeau – Composer and Professor in Electrocoustic Music, Université de Montréal
SOUND – IMMERSION :: THE FABRIC OF WIND SPACE ARCHITECTURE AND MULTI CHANNEL SOUND
Steve Heimbecker will emphasize new sound experiences and the related immersive possibilities. His work is based on sound compression in time and in space. Most recently he has created an immersive 64 channel useful for exploring how sound is distributed.
Steve Heimbecker – Artist
