Tomorrow evening Music Technology’s own Paul Geluso is performing at Whitebox Sound Lab alongside Lars Graugaard. The performance focuses on the concept of 3D sound objects to create a unique in-air listening experience.
As Paul Geluso describes it, “What is the 3D Sound Object? What is the sound? What are we doing? It’ s fantastic! Special. An adventure in listening. Whereas traditional sound synthesis is usually done electronically then projected through loudspeakers, the 3D Sound Object purposely causes electronic sound sources to be summed, subtracted, and filtered in the air. To my surprise, the in-air processing technique creates a complex and evolving physical sound sculpture that can be experienced from several perspectives. To my knowledge, it’s a one of a kind. I can’t predict how everyone will perceive the sound, but everyone who has heard it is excited.”
Lars Graugaard adds, “Working with Paul Geluso’s 3D Sound Object in Thin Air isn’t like any other sound amplification techniques. It creates in fact an entirely different notion of sound amplification – what it is, what it can be. It’s a rich, immersive impact on the senses. And the unparalleled opportunities it offers gives a whole new meaning to the conception of a ‘sound.’ It wraps you in a three-dimensional space.”
