Essay
Read the full essay in English

The text is part of the European project Acoustic Commons and questions our relationship to location, its sound, and our contact with and making sense of what we hear.

On the 28 Sept, CONA’s co-founder Brane ZORMAN will be meeting our partners at the Vienna Acousmonium.

The Acousmatic Project is a fascinating journey in the realm of developing a multichannel sound systems, that began in 2010. The analysis of acousmatic oeuvres conceived music-space oriented ideas that were looking for an instrument to be realised with the aim to spatialise ephemeral dynamic-motion sound sculptures.
