Quadraphonic Interactive & Performative Workshop @ Echo Park Rising

For Echo Park Rising, a quad installation was set-up inside the Edendale Branch of the LA Public Library open to the public.

Throughout the afternoon we switched between two performances: the first being a quadraphonic sound bath with Suzanne Ciani’s most recent Quad LP (and the creator of the system Kamran V).

In the second part, I gave a short workshop on immersive audio/quad, before diving into an interactive quad performance that the audience had the chance to interact with. This interaction was done through the use of 4 iPads that had the capability of triggering sounds and placing them around the four speakers of the quad setup as I performed an ambient set.

This performance is scheduled to be repeated in 2019, and will include special guests and a different venue (TBA).
