Can’t think about sound and time without space.

“It’s fairly meaningless to talk about sound without time” (Andrew Hugill, The Digital Musician). Ditto space. For most of my working audio life the spatial component of sound has been a given.

It’s been dependable.

It’s been conveniently restricted.

It’s been a parameter to nullify rather than a world to explore.

It’s fallen into four categories: performance (on-stage, in rehearsal, in a bedroom); rarefied (to be captured and manipulated in a studio in which space is normalised); playback (pre-recorded program as witnessed post-fact) and otherOther has always been the weakling child. <insert Liugi Russolo quote>

But I’m tired of the given. I’m ready to have my comforts unsettled though I’m anxious also that my skills and acumen hitherto may be for nought.
