Acoustic Projection and the relationship between sound and space

Acoustic Projection and the relationship between sound and space
In recent musical compositions the structuring of sound no longer occurs in time, but in space. Space is understood as musical parameter, which is possible to design as three-dimensional sound.

Artist and scientist Markus Noisternig introduces the foundations and technology of ambisonics and wave-field synthesis: each is a system with which sounds can be three-dimensionally projected into space. The potential pros and cons arising in the creative treatment of these systems are discussed with Ludger Brümmer, Director of the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics.

Markus Noisternig works as a scientist at the renowned IRCAM Paris, where he is currently pursuing research in the field of spatial acoustics. As an artist, he has participated in numerous collaborative projects with well-known composers and ensembles of New Music which have performed in key European festivals.
