4DSound is a new sound system developed by Paul Oomen (read Oomen’s Introduction to Psychoacoustics for Red Bull Music Academy). Forty eight speakers are arranged in a grid throughout the room, surrounding the audience.
The setup is controlled by Ableton Live 9 and Max for Live and Ableton recently put together a video on 4DSound:
4DSound will be at Amsterdam Dance Event from October 15th through 19th, there will be performances, talks, and hack sessions. Artists include Vladislav Delay, Stimming, and Max Cooper – who recently put on the best live show I’ve ever seen. The full 4DSound ADE program can be found here.
