The diffusions Simon Emmerson announced are being realized with Third Monk
Software's ABControl program, which handles spatialization and mixer
control of the AudioBox. Several of the pieces were part of a Bannf
workshop in October in which the composers and myself worked to extend live
diffusion control.

Of particular interest, I believe, is David Eagle's Prelude, in which the
performer controls the diffusion during the performance. Unlike manual
diffusion, the automation and high-level MIDI control we designed let's
David control patterns and gestures during the performance. The aXiĜ
simultaneously controls the sound production, AND, the sound localization.

I believe the concert will be of great interest to anyone working in
multi-channel audio, and look forward to any feedback on technical aspects.
