Multichannel wiring day

2am: An extraordinarily long day in the studio today, constructing fixtures and cable channels for the 24-speaker system that we’re using to preview and spatially mix Living Symphonies.

We finished making the brackets to install speakers at low, mid and high vertical placements, a wonderfully flexible system devised by Rob Pell-Walpole (below) and Simon Wheeler. The framework is here pictured with the Bowers and Wilkins AM-1 architectural monitors that we will be using throughout the tour.

We celebrated completing the wiring with a 16-channel spatial diffusion of Alva Noto, which sounded unreal circulating around the space.
