® Sound Space

Innovation, Research, Composition

The Sound Space is a new musical instrument. In a similar way a sampler is an empty box to be filled up with sound files, the Sound Space turns the physical space around the performer as a key-area to place and to play his own voice samples. With the Sound Space, a performer literary spreads his voice around him by the gesture, creating an entire sound scene while playing with it. The gesture association of time and space makes this instrument also suitable for dancers and body/movement artists, and for various applications.
