Joel Mellin
Vortex (A Whirling Mass Of Air, Especially One In The Form Of A Spiral, As A Tornado)


April 30 – May 1, 2010


New works for a fully immersive 3 dimensional ambisonic audio environment – a Vortitorium – with performances by Joel Mellin (music) and Faurot / Paulson (performance). The audience will listen from the inside of a cube whose corners intersect the unit sphere where the sound is located. This environment allows for the encoding of audio in spherical coordinates, thus leveraging more physical height information than surround sound.
