Voices – A Festival of Song: Hear There, Everywhere

PandaMachine and Ily Matthew Maniano (Singapore/Philippines)

Wed, 1 Dec 2021 - Sat, 4 Dec 2021
Esplanade Annexe Studio

Hear There, Everywhere is a multi-speaker spatial audio experience featuring choral works from Ily Matthew Maniano and Muziksea.

As choral performances are far and few during the pandemic, this showcase aims to reimagine the experience of listening to a choir performance through special placement of speakers around the Annexe Studio space and specified playback of layers from the recorded pieces.

Audiences can expect to be surrounded by voices around and above them, as sound travels from one speaker to another during parts of the showcase.
