spatial fixed-media composition
This work was realized (and recorded) at the CUBE (IEM Graz A) and uses its specific set-up consisting of 72 loudspeakers. One level of the composition uses the differentiated position of the phantom sound source as an essential aspect. In doing so, the depth of the space is specifically used compositionally as a sound quality. A second level consists of the integration of recorded room sounds. In the context of a spatial expansion these sounds are considered as a form of a fictitious dissolution of spatial boundaries.
