Acusmonium Audior is a bespoke spatial sound projection system

A “speaker orchestra” designed by composer François Bayle for the presentation of electroacoustic music.

Back in 1996 an Italian priest, Giulio Greco, invited New York artist Dan Flavin to create an installation to mark the renovation of the Santa Maria Annunciata in Chiesa Rossa church in Milan. The result was ‘Untitled’, a light installation completed with the help of Fondazione Prada.

This is the setting that Threes, the minds behind the experimental eco-extravaganza Terraforma festival, chose to stage their latest installation, which was a demonstration of the Acusmonium Audior, a bespoke spatial sound projection system.

Designed by French composer François Bayle in 1974, the Acusmonium Audior was designed as a “speaker orchestra” for the presentation of electroacoustic composition. Threes brought the bespoke sound system to the permanent installation for a special concert showcasing it’s spatial sound projection capabilities. Check out some photos from the concert below.
