Audium 11, New Sound Experience, Debuts November 22, 2019!
Two years in the making, Audium 11 dives into the primordial world buried beneath the surface of consciousness; the shifting sonic layers deep inside us all. Listeners will be immersed in urban sounds more familiar, as well as a vast assortment of electronic sounds in the abstract. In Audium’s pitch-black, 176-speaker space, a calm scene in a cafe can become a raucous thunderstorm, and dark ethereal rumblings can morph into pleasant piano tinkling.
For this new work, Audium’s entire theater has been reimagined with new sound compositions by father-son duo Stan and Dave Shaff. The building also features a brand-new artwork by local artist Ryan Elisabeth Reid. Sculpted “sound pods” float above and around the gallery while abstract images grace its walls.
This new work is taking the language of immersive, spatial environments to new levels,” says Stan Shaff. “Audiences will feel sound as it bumps up against them, caresses, covers and enfolds them.
Audium is the only theater of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music for over 45 years. Listeners are bathed in sound which are moved about the space in real-time. “Sound sculptures” are performed in the darkness of the 49-seat theater.
Audium 11 premieres November 22, 2019, and will play every weekend thereafter.
