Multi-channel audio for concerts and audio installations

The class combines practical and theoretical aspects of working with multichannel audio. The student is introduced to the use of multi-channel sound at live concerts and audio installations.

  • The topics are introduced in a historical context and include spatial hearing, psychoacoustics, panning modes (theory, implementation, limitations) and current panning tools
  • Different techniques and methods are presented from both a practical and a theoretical point of view
  • Using amongst others the 36-channel speaker arrangement at ‘Klubscenen’ practical experience is gained from creating acusmatic works as well as live performances
  • The teaching is a combination of presentations, review of software and hardware, listening sessions and critique sessions on the students’ work
