Just curious here. has anyone in here been experimenting in making music with more than two channels? Like e.g. music for a four-speaker setup or even surround?
I attended a 'new music' performance on Friday that got me thinking about this very thing. The event itself (which, for the acutely curious, was cello-centric) was to my tastes a little on the ho-hum side, but the space where it went down was very cool: a small, roundish room with stained-glass windows up on the top floor of a terrific old building that was once a kind of boarding school. I think the room was originally the school's chapel. Anyway, they apparently frequently host 'adventurous/experimental' sorts of musical happenings there, and I keep thinking about how cool it would be to do something with beaucoup speakers lining the perimeter of the space.
