New Adventures in Sound: Sound Travels Creates Complex Musical Experiences

Sound Travels is an international series of 8 channel electroacoustic concerts and composer residencies using the RSD Audiobox(TM) with Third Monk Software’s ABControl software. Electroacoustic composers have traditionally spatialized their work manually to an orchestra of loudspeakers from a stereo source. Different layers of a work can move in space independently by automating 8 pre-recorded channels with the Audiobox. This creates a more musically complex experience that is attractive for its likeness to listening in the everyday acoustic environment.


A selection of Canadian works from the Sound Travels repertoire will be presented in addition to discussion about the AudioBox and its unique application in electroacoustic music.
