ZIRKONIUM WORKSHOP
LILLA SALEN
Spatial Audio and Zirkonium + Zirkonium Hands-On Workshop by Ludger Brümmer / Dan Wilcox

Limited number of participants. See www.kmh.se/konserter  for information.


This workshop provides an overview of Zirkonium 3.4, the latest version of ZKM |Hertz-Lab‘s sound spatialization software environment. A sound server, trajectory editor, and sequencer rolled into one, Zirkonium abstracts physical speaker layouts and automatically pans sound sources based on their position which can be moved over time, either through interpolation or direct control over a network connection.

The first part of the workshop is open to a wider audience. Within a lecture setting, both technical aspects and usability of the software as well as spatial audio as a compositional tool are addressed by Ludger Brümmer and Dan Wilcox.

The second part of the workshop puts emphasis on a hands-on use of Zirkonium. Up to 15 participants can register beforehand. They should bring their Apple laptops (macOS 10.10+) as well as headphones and pre-recorded material they would like to try out on the Klankupolen.


Dan Wilcox (*1981, Orange, United States) is an artist, engineer, musician, performer who combines live musical performance techniques with experimental electronics and software for the exploration of new expression, often through themes of science fiction, space travel, cyborgification, and far futurism. He currently lives in Karlsruhe, Germany and is an artist, researcher and software developer for the ZKM | Hertz-Lab.

Ludger Brümmer (*1958, Werne, Germany) is a composer, professor of composition, and head of the research institute ZKM | Hertz-Lab since 2017. Since 2003, as head of the former ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics, he initiated the Sound Dome Project and important festivals on electronic music. The central focus of his music is the use of the computer both as an artistic means of composition and for electronic sound production. Brümmer has also realized a series of multimedia and interdisciplinary projects, experimental music pieces, compositions for dance and live electronics, and is interested in the interaction between acoustic instruments and live video.
