At first only the point of entry is recognised; beyond lies space. In
time more and more landmarks are identified and the subject gains
confidence in movement. Finally the space consists of familiar
landmarks and paths – in other words, place. (pp.71 Yi-Fu Tuan 1977)

In acousmatic music both place(s) and spaces(s) are a great source of
inspiration and importance for the compositions to “become” and a
pre-condition for the music to be perceived.

In this concert you will hear a selection of compositions that relate
to place(s) and/or space(s) in many different ways.

Concert pre-talk with each curator 18:00

The curator will  present and perform the concerts. As well, and before each concert at 18:00, we will arrange a pre-concert talk with each curator, to discuss further each curators artistic profile, choices for programme, approaches to spatialization etc.

Ambisonics in Marmorsalen, Sentralen, Oslo

Both concerts will be  performed in Marmorsalen at Sentralen, Oslo, using 3DA’s 24-channel playback system for HOA Ambisonics.
