Multiple Speaker Syndrome with Phil Strong


Join CFAT as we welcome Phil Strong for a workshop and tech talk!

This presentation and workshop will centre on unique listening situations involving non-standard audio works and speaker arrays – and how to think about repurposing standard systems to unique situations. The examples will focus on the soundtrack work Phil Strong has made in collaboration with visual artists such as Johanna Householder and Su Rynard leading up to the sound installation A Time To Hear for Here: a 35 speaker 4-story non-repeating sound environment conceived by John Oswald and commissioned by the Royal Ontario Museum. Such a complex array cannot be fully reproduced in our 6-speaker workshop system – but we will hear appropriate extracts and scalable examples from this ever-changing sound mobile. Depending on available setup time and equipment, we will also attempt some analog sound visualization and real time multi speaker improv and composition.
