I’ve been working with Thol on the surround-sound audio for Surface Tensions in SVA’s wonderful Goods Shed. By now he has at least 100 tracks running simultaneously, so it takes a little time to load (and only crashed once today!). This is only the second time that we have heard the piece through all eight speakers, and it sounds so different from stereo. So we have been remixing to make the most of the audio space that such a setup offers; not to mention how it has triggered new thoughts about the way the images for the installation should be presented. And so it goes on….
