Echo Moiré is a robotic opera-ballet in which a pair of loudspeaker vehicles is employed to play a room as a musical instrument. Exploring the acoustic properties of the room, the vehicles create aural images that float in the air, enveloping listeners with patterns of echoes rebounding off the walls.

The work is inspired by Alvin Lucier's 1968 composition Vespers and investigates human echolocation, aural spatial perception and the physics of sound. Using mobile directional loudspeakers emitting trains of pulses, the trajectories followed by sound waves from source to listener are made apparent. Gradually scanning the room’s boundaries, aural images of the space are formed. Modulating the pulses over time, these images are manipulated and sculpted, giving rise to different spatial forms, textures and densities in which the audience is immersed. Providing a theatrical dramatization for the practice of acousmatic music, the project shifts sound spatialization out of the computational realm and into the physical world.

Performances will start at 4, 4.30, 5 and 5.30pm. The performance has a maximum audience capacity of 30 people. Access is permitted only at the start of each performance.  Please sign up at the Registration Desk.
