Workshop on Acousmatic Diffusion Registration Form



La diffusion est une technique de performance électroacoustique où, par exemple, une pièce stéréophonique est jouée sur un nombre bien plus important de haut-parleurs. Un interprète manipule la distribution spatiale du son depuis la table de mixage, en temps réel durant le concert. L'atelier mettra à disposition des participants un tel dispositif, tout comme pour le concert du lendemain soir, avec 22 haut-parleurs et caissons de basse Meyer UPJ-1P. L'atelier sera donné en français, avec traduction anglaise si nécessaire.

Diffusion is a technique for electroacoustic performance in which a (typically) two-channel piece is played back on many more than two speakers. A performer at the mixing board manipulates the spatial distribution of sound in real time during a concert. This workshop will use the same custom-designed multiple speaker setup as for the concert the following evening, featuring twenty-two Meyer UPJ-1P loudspeakers and subs. The workshop will be held in French, with English translation available if required.
