There, one could experiment for the first time with electro-acoustic sounds and tape recordings. Each of them can be controlled separately. In specially developed compositions, it was now possible to precisely model the sound and distribute and diffuse it throughout the room. Jump to.
The Acousmatic Project
The Acousmonium is the sound diffusion system designed in by Francois Bayle and used originally by the Groupe de Recherches Musicales at the Maison de Radio France. It consists of 80 loudspeakers of differing size and shape, and was designed for tape playback. Another utopia, devoted to pure "listening" … as a penetrable "projection area", arranged with a view to immersion in sound, to spatialised polyphony, which is articulated and directed. This is done by the composer or a performer by controlling and adjusting the spatial distribution and volume of the music during playback.
An acousmonium, or loudspeaker orchestra, is a system of spatially-separated loudspeakers designed for diffusing electroacoustic music. The speakers in such a system are chosen based on their sonic properties and placed in space with the intention of imparting spatial and timbral effects on the music played through them. Acousmonia are in fact musical instruments that composers and sound artists use in concerts to perform otherwise static tape pieces. Unfortunately, acousmonia are large systems that are challenging to maintain, upgrade, transport, and reconfigure. Additionally, their sole task is limited to the diffusion of acousmatic music.
Our fascinating journey in the realm of developing a multichannel sound systems began in The analysis of acousmatic oeuvres conceived music-space oriented ideas that were looking for an instrument to be realized. The imagination to spatialize ephemeral dynamic-motion sound sculptures was the starting point of technical issues for developing the Vienna Acousmonium. In this association has been found — starting with small concerts of 8 loudspeakers in a circle. Over the years it developed with two festivals per year, a special loudspeakers orchestra and a lot of cooperations with national and international associations and artists. The focus lies on elaborating a professional concert entity for artists in this genre and the resulting involvement of austrian composers to the international discours. And finally to explore the possibilities of constructing a loudspeakers orchestra, an Acousmonium. The Vienna Acousmonium.
