AUDIUM: A THEATRE IN SOUND
Program Note Excerpts:
Sound location, travel and dimension in time and space are the inherent concerns of AUDIUM.
The need for a permanent environment providing for the specific concerns of the compositions, led to the first AUDIUM series at this location in 1967. The ability of the tape performer to interpret the compositions through his control of sound dimension facilitated the interaction between composer, performer and audience.
The evolution of the compositions combined with the experiences and possibilities of this new medium have resulted in the current presentation. It is a total sound theatre. The environment is not only a setting, it is in itself a sound instrument.
