Subj: Melbourne: Immersion Events


Co-Ordinated & Curated by Philip Samartzis in association with
Experimenta Media Arts

Cinemedia @ Treasury Theatre - Melbourne

11 - 13 June 1999

Immersion is a series of 3 concert presentations featuring 17 specially
commissioned surround sound compositions by Australian and international
composers and sound artists. Mastered onto 35mm Dolby Digital, these
concert presentations will highlight exciting developments in
contemporary sound spatialisation, where systems of reproduction and
playback have been extended beyond the stereo field to include surround,
immersive and 3 dimensional sound experiences.

Philip Samartzis, (experimental sound artist & lecturer in Sound at Media
Arts, RMIT) has curated 3 programs to emphasise the diversity of work
being conducted in the field. Note : Immersion contains no images or
moving imagery. The focus is purely on the sensory and tactile sensations
of sound moving through a cinematic space.

As a component of Immersion, there will be a series of free artists=92
talks programmed across three days which will discuss the significance of
spatialisation within the compositional process.

1. French electroacoustic composer Bernard Parmegiani, will present a talk
on the theory behind the development of the Acousmonium (100 speaker sound
system) which is currently housed at Radio France in Paris.

2. Melbourne based sound designer Philip Brophy, will discuss the
development of Dolby surround sound and how that has contributed to the
development of more sophisticated film sound.

3. French electroacoustic composer Cecile Le Prado, (currently conducting
3D sound research at IRCAM in Paris), will discuss the creative,
ideological and aesthetic issues of composing for space.
