4 rooms – 4 musicians – 1 concert
a user experience experiment
drums, bass, guitar and keys have their own room – connected with headphones they perform as one band – visitors can decide about which musician to focus on or listen to the surround mix provided in a 5th room
table top is a live performance by Matthias Kronlachner created for the loudspeaker sphere in the Astronomical Observatory tower of Vilnius University.
The performance was recorded on November 22nd, 2013 and December 3rd, 2013.
The original format of the piece is 5th order 3D Ambisonics, but you can listen to a binaural mixdown here: (please listen with high quality headphones!)
table-top-4 (November 22nd, 2013)
table-top-6 (December 3rd, 2013)
The binaural mixdown was done with the ambix Ambisonics Plug-Ins and the 24 binaural loudspeaker impulse responses are taken from the IEM Cube. Therefore you are virtually placed in the IEM Cube during listening to this piece with headphones.
This piece is based on field recordings taken near Fethiye, in the south of Turkey. From the numerous bee yards a whirling sound surrounds you when tracking the Lycian way along the cost.
Chalva is a sweet made with honey. But depending on the recipe, the natural origin might not be clear.
The composition plays with a transition from natural to super synthetic. From pure noise to white tones.
Listen to my tape piece “Chalva” done for the Eikkk Electronic and Computer Music Competition (Elektroninių ir kompiuterinių kūrinių konkursas) in April 2013 in Vilnius. Quadrophonic piece rendered to Binaural Stereo.
