- Distribute 20-50 speakers evenly throughout the hemispherical main
room of the Innovation Center.
- Create a software interface to enable
sending sounds to specific locations around the room.
- When not under manual control, allow music to flow/pan around the room freely?
I'm thinking of this in terms of its musical performance potential, a la what Stockhausen did way back in 1970 at the Osaka World Expo (see above):
But I'm sure that there are many cool uses a hemispherical speaker array could be put to. :-)
The technology for directional sound without multiple speakers is around. http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/woody_norris_invents_amazing_things.html
Let me know if i hit the nail on the head. (email@example.com) (firstname.lastname@example.org)
