About the event

CT::SWaM is inviting you to participate in this 1-day workshop on Aug 7 2023, during which we want to explore live diffusion as a sound spatialization technique and a wider theme. There will be a 12-channel cube speaker system installed in the gallery's Plasticity Office. The mixing board will be our main instrument. Daniel Neumann will introduce various techniques and invite participants to explore their own, with their own materials. :

Live diffusion in its basic form means taking a preexisting stereo track, duplicating it to 8 faders on a mixing board and then using those faders to send the signal dynamically to 8 loudspeakers that are spread around the room. This technique was first established by the community of French composers around the Acousmonium and musique concrète. (The Germans called it sound projection.) : Anyhow, the workshop will result in a group presentation for which we will collectively develop a larger overall structure as part of the activities. For this development we’ll experimentally use concepts of Decentering (taking on multitudes of perspectives; the ability to consider multiple aspects of a situation; any of a variety of techniques aimed at changing one’s centered thinking to openminded thinking).
