This workshop will take place at the exciting new 32-channel surround studio at the Music Faculty of the University of Montreal.


A number of technological and compositional approaches to spatialization being developed and used by CIRMMT members will be presented. Participants will be able to evaluate their effectiveness in ideal listening conditions and will also be able to take part in hands-on demonstrations. We will examine the relative strengths and weaknesses of various systems for different compositional purposes (acousmatic, live electronics, videomusic). A precise schedule will follow soon.

This workshop will conclude with an important general meeting of Axis 6 where we will discuss, among other things, proposals for a distinguished lecturer for 2009-10 from our axis. The meeting will be followed by a reception. Please plan on attending if possible.
