UL Spatialisation and Auditory Display Environment (SpADE) Premiere

This afternoon, Kerry with the help of a few PhD students had rigged up the 32 channel rig in CSG-01 in the CSIS department at UL. It was amazing to see, and in particular hear. A number of pieces were heard:
- Steve McCourt's quadrophonics work.
- David Spondike's Schnappschuss von der Erde (8 channel)
- Roland Cahen's ROTATIONS II (8 channel)
- Kerry's stochastic tape work (24 channel)
Finally, I got the opportunity to try out one of my new experimental pd patches, using modified VBAP.
The SpADE is a fantastic resource, allowing our unique approach in both artistic endeavors in electroacoustic music and scientific work in auditory display to co-exist and flourish.
Today's event was a pre-hear, testing the general configuration and the equipment. In the autumn, we'll run a full public event.

ICAD 2008

After a week in Paris at ICAD2008 and a week back at UL, I'm trying to stop neglecting this blog.
While in Paris, I rediscovered La Ferandaise an excellent little restaurant. In the mornings before the conference I enjoyed the fountain outside IRCAM
