The side program of Aural Spaces offers anyone with an interest in immersive experiences the chance to learn about unique making processes and technological developments in spatial sound. The Concertgebouw, 4DSOUND and FIBER Festival invite you to learn more about the possibilities of 4DSOUND, by attending an inspiring masterclass by Dutch-Italian artist Grand River. 4DSOUND is a unique sound system that pushes the boundaries of spatial sound as a creative medium. By being part of this program you get to know the ways in which leading musicians use 4DSOUND to present us their visions of spatial sound experiences.
As part of the programme, the composer and sound designer Aimée Portioli (performing as Grand River ) will guide you through her work, with a special focus on the 4DSOUND piece Tuning the Wind . She will elaborate on several elements and questions. How does Grand River approach the concept of spatiality and how does she engage with nature in her work? The artist will also provide some insights into the development of her work Tuning the Wind , which will be performed later that evening. Tuning the Wind, which started as a five-channel audio installation, consists of recorded and reworked different types of wind, layers and pitches that are integrated to form the musical piece.
This masterclass is open for anyone interested in learning more about spatial and immersive sound environments – enthusiasts, students and professionals – and you don’t need any previous knowledge around the topic.
