Nadine Schütz and Andrew Knight-Hill with the IKO in the large industrial warehouse of Grande Salle Pantin

Dr Andrew Knight-Hill recently completed a residency working with IKO and ambisonic sound at the world leading centre for audio research IRCAM (Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique).

This ten day residency was organised in collaboration with Nadeine Schütz and Natasha Barrett as part of an international research project “Reconfiguring the Landscape“. This practice research project utilized the combined resources of IRCAM and the SOUND/IMAGE research group, bringing together two em32 eigenmike microphones to make parallel 4th order ambisonic recordings and the IKO to project sound within the impressive space of the former Pouchard Tube Factory, Grande Salle Pantin.

The team developed works for IKO, hemisphere (IRCAM Studio 1) and dual ambisonic installation which were presented at IRCAM at the end of the ten day period.

They also hosted multiple online seminars discussing the scope of the project and the research:

Table ronde IRCAM sur les relations entre le paysage, l’environnement audio et les arts sonores. Table-ronde en anglais.
