Electronic music, computer music and sound design has so far opened up space as a compositional dimension mainly through multi-channel loudspeaker systems configured as an acoustic outer shell around the audience. The seminar, on the other hand, sees itself as an introduction to an aesthetic practice that composes space by taking it as a prerequisite for sonic-sculptural material, thereby artistically incorporating performance environments of varying complexity.

In the course of the seminar, electro-acoustic space-sound phenomena, plastic sound objects, which occur in certain sound (re)production processes, will be theoretically motivated and experienced in practice with regard to their acoustic foundations and artistic po(e)tential.

Aimed at: Composers, musicians, sound designers and sound artists
