Floating Points 2008 - ISSUE Project Room

This Festival, in its third year, explores the versatility of ISSUE Project Room's innovative house speaker system, designed by Stephan Moore.
In the hands of these diverse performers and sound artist, this fifteen-channel installation of hemisphere loudspeakers radically changes the concert experience for both performer and audience.

Each of the hemispheres radiates sound in all directions, activating the acoustics of this unique concert space. Immersive sonic environments are generated, electronic sounds take on the characteristic intimacy of acoustic instruments, and location is liberated as a musical dimension.

Wednesday, June 18

Sawako Kato will premiere new compositions for the Issue Project Room. Sawako weaves the intimate sound scape with fragments from her recent trips + sine tone + subtle voice.

Tristan Perch will show his new work with 5 voices and 15-channel 1-bit electronics + a short piece for 3 violins.
