Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The Garden of Sonic Delights (2015-16) invites the listener to enter an imaginary soundscape (one that Murray Schafer might describe as a “soniferous garden”) richly filled with sounds that may remind us of the actual sounds of water, wind, insects, animals and birds. Our visit will take us through the afternoon until the next morning, hopefully leaving us delighted and refreshed.

    The piece was commissioned by Birmingham ElectroAcoustic Sound Theatre (BEAST) for BEAST FEaST 2016, and realized in 48 channels at the Technical University, Berlin, and the composer’s private studio assisted by Outboard’s TiMax2 Soundhub for spatialization.

  • Technical specs: 

    8-channel audio playback (24 bit/44.1 kHz .aiff files) in circular format.
