The acousmonium is a powerful instrument for live spatialization. Designed in 1974 by François Bayle, it consists of an array of loudspeakers (IAC’s is 80). In this free workshop, artist Lola Ajima (who performs on it on Saturday night) will tell us about its history and offer an introduction on how it works and how to use it. Participants will also have the opportunity for hands-on spatialization of electroacoustic music, trying the system for themselves. This workshop is for sound artists and experimental musicians who are interested in live spatialization for concert, installation, or theater performance, or anyone else interested in electroacoustic music.
Lola Ajima is the artist name of Boe Przemyslak, a composer and sound artist educated at Conservatoire de Pantin in Paris. She was taught composition by Christine Groult and Marco Marini, and interpretation on the acousmonium by Jonathan Prager. Lola is co-founder of Beats by Girlz – Denmark – an organization promoting and supporting women, non-binary, and transgender people in electronic music – as well as co-founder of the Copenhagen based XYZ Sound Collective, whose mission is to promote spatial and immersive sound experiences.
