In this first concert it seems appropriate to explore the historical and stylistic extremes of the acousmatic repertoire. Short works from as early as 1968 are interpreted over our latest spatialisation technology, and contrasted with recent compositions that have been performed world-over. The program explores the diversity of the acousmatic genre displaying influences ranging from environmental-based sound-art through to intense concert experiences.

The concert will begin with a short introduction about the Technology we are using and about the works that we shall play.
