“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 other. Other 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.
