Working on the piece Phases2 for the SuperCollider symposium coming week (yes, I'm late...). The Wavefield Synthesis system is basically a rectangle with 192 speakers lined up, and a lot of software behind that to calculate signals to go to each of these speakers to simulate sound placement in the space - not only within the rectangle, but you can also place sounds outside it. Below is my first version of the spatialization, where every line represents a path a certain soundtrack has to go through during the piece. There are about 20 tracks. I have a feeling I need to thin it out.. Somewhere in the mess in the middle there are 4 lines indicating the speaker rows.
