On Friday 25th May at 5.30pm in the Royal Dockyard Church, the School of Music and Fine Art, University of Kent, Medway is delighted to present an exchange concert (the second in the series) between Greenwich University and SMFA students. It will involve multi-channel electroacoustic compositions of spatial sound and audiovisual works by students.
Music and Audio Arts Sound Theatre (MAAST) is a portable and flexible sound diffusion system designed for the performance of electroacoustic music and research in spatial sound.
The system comprises a custom-made 32-channel Gluion console, two MOTU audio interfaces, an array of Genelec loudspeakers which include sixteen bi-amplified 8020s, twenty 8040s, four tri-amplified 1038s, 7060B and 7070A subwoofers, and custom-made loudspeaker stands that can be extended up to 3 metres in height. The console controls the sound diffusion through OSC and Max/MSP. The system allows for diffusion of stereo and multichannel works, and its setup is flexible, depending on the spatial characteristic of concert and sound installation venues.
