for stereo sound // duration: 6'58"
Quarter Space explores the use of motion within an acousmatic space to differentiate between streams of musical material. The piece was composed using octophonic spatialization routines wherein both processed and unprocessed samples of the Tarogato are juxtaposed, each according to algorithmically defined spatial trajectories. The stereo pair of output channels 1 and 2 were then retained to construct the piece, while the remaining 6 channels of output were discarded. The result is a music whose character is defined within an octophonic space, yet exists within a quarter space; a subset of sound material, which is drastically more differentiated than the sum of the full acousmatic sound world.
