Spatial Sound

…And A Spark Lit The Blaze (2016)

Koenraad Ecker

As part of his residency at 4DSOUND: Points On The Curve, presented at GLOBALE ZKM in Karlsruhe and Spatial Sound Institute in Budapest, Koenraad Ecker explored how orientation-through-sound plays an essential role in regulating our instinctive emotions and responses: closeness, fear, protection and isolation, even feelings of warmth or coldness are influenced by the space we acoustically perceive ourselves to be in.

The resulting composition ‘…and a spark lit the blaze’ was nominated for 2017’s Prix Ars Electronica and included as part of 4DSOUND: A Retrospective at MONOM Berlin.
