During the next several years, a new building was located, space for a new Audium theater was designed and built with the help of a small grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The theater (1616 Bush St., S.F.) includes a foyer, sound labyrinth, and a performance space with sloping walls, floating floor, and 136 speakers, hanging above the audience and embedded in walls and floors. Every element of the environment is conceived as being a part of the sound fabric; choreographing sound is its focus.
