The spatialization control for the sound pavilion »The Morning Line« (TML) was developed in the context of »TopoPhonien« a sound art series of the artist Sabine Schäfer, who created the commissioned work »The Morning Line Bell« for »inSonic2015«.

47 speakers are built in the metal construction of TML. The sound engineer and software programmer Jannis Lehnert, with Sabine Schäfer worked together since 2013, has developed a software control within the meaning of the TopoPhonien aesthetics. Sound generation and movement are precisely synchronized via the 47-channel speaker system of TML and simultaneously sounding sound layers are independently distributed spatially accurate, inter alia the involvement of SPAT (IRCAM).

The workshop provides a brief introduction to the sound composition and describes the software design of the spatialization control suited for the interesting loudspeaker arrangement of TML which is designed by Dr. Tony Myatt, Research Director of the TBA21- Academy.
