Audium’s Spatial Sound Residency Program supports artists in creating and performing new immersive works of sound, projection and light.  Participants learn methods of sound movement within Audium’s unique custom-built environment. The program allows Bay Area artists to share immersive sound-art experiences with audiences from around the world. Audium provides a space for artists- particularly artists of color from historically excluded communities- to learn and experiment with sound movement, share their creations with the public, and get the compensation they deserve.

During three months of creation, artists are trained to use Audium’s spatial sound system, compose fully immersive sound compositions, and rehearse their works. During a two-month performance period, participants perform their sound compositions three nights per week. Artists receive a stipend of $1,000 per month during the creation period, and $150 per show during the performance period (totaling 24 planned performances).
