1. Sometimes known as “cinema for the ear,” acousmatic music is a compositional form traditionally presented in the dark to help focus and intensify the hearing of the audience. Using dozens of loudspeakers hung in a ring surrounding the listeners, composers and performers manipulate the pieces in real time for an all-encompassing experience as electronic sound is moved around the space.

    Featuring performer/composers Nicolas Bernier, Richard Chartier, Jean Francois Laporte, Martin Tétreault, and Louis Dufort.
