Immersive Sound at the University of Québec in Montréal with SPAT Revolution

Apr 27, 2018

Flux:: and LS Media (Flux:: Canada) were invited by the GRMS Sound Media Research Group and the international Hexagram Network, at the University of Québec in Montréal (UQAM) in Canada, to host an Immersive Sound and Spatialization workshop.

The presentation took place at the GRMS multiphonic laboratory in their new 32-speaker hemispheric diffusion dome, with hands-on participation for all the participants running SPAT Revolution direct on the own laptops during the workshop.

Simon-Pierre Gourd, Professor at the UQAM says:

“As Hexagram researchers, It’s a great pleasure for the GRMS Sound Media Research Group to have this opportunity here at our facility, with the mezzanine as the laboratory of the group and the hemispheric diffusion dome for the Immersive Sound experience during the workshop.”

ESPACE – Multiphonic Concert

The same evening after the workshop, the ESPACE Multiphonic Concert took place, in collaboration with Centro Mexicano para la Musica y las Artes Sonoras (CMMAS), the Groupe de Recherche en Médiatisation du Son (GRMS) and Hexagram UQAM.

With this concert the GRMS launched their new 32-loudspeaker hemispheric dome system at the Agora Hydro-Québec du Coeur des Sciences.
