Dr. JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, Inside the AlloSphere.
We are excited to announce the grand reopening of the AlloSphere Instrument in October with a new immersive exhibition entitled Musics of the Sphere by Dr. Robert Morris. This is a spatial audio composition made expressly for the 54.1 channel sound system of the AlloSphere, with no visuals, featuring the unique audio resolution of the instrument. The work is a 57-minute, fixed-media computer music composition in six tracks of spatially modulated sounds. The Allosphere is the perfect venue to present the piece where loudspeakers are placed around and above and below the listeners.
Musics of the Sphere is a celebration of “musics” from all over the world. Over 150 excerpts of all types of music from Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe comprise the sounds in each track. These “musics” are presented as such (without modification) to partial and complete transformation via a host of computer music techniques.

October 13th: free performances at 6 pm, 7 pm, 8 pm
October 14th: walk-in installation starting at 6 pm
