Memories of journey, the future of spatial acoustics – See by Your Ears

Sound artist evala explores sound design not only in the sense of composing music along the time axis, but spatially. In recent years, he has continued to present a number of sound works that no one has ever experienced before, as his spatial view of the musical world leads to the evolution of innovative sound technology and methods. In the talk session, evala will reveal his interpretation of technology and designing the sound as an output, as we review his past works from the past through his latest award-winning creations, Chosho Hakkei, Invisible Cinema „Sea, See, She – To you, who is yet to come“, Synesthesia X1-2.44, Touch that Sound, and Acoustic Vessel Odyssey.
