First Major Topophonien Installation at Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe
After two smaller concerts at Schloss Gottesaue and Stephanssaal (both in Karlsruhe) the first major Topophonien installation took place at Badischer Kunstverein. Both 16- and 24-channel systems were used to their full extent…
The Topophonien project marks the point at which I turned my hobby of building music-related electronics into a job. Prior to this I had mostly tinkered with various guitar effect circuits, so when Sabine Schäfer approached me in 1990 with a request if I could build her a computer controlled spatialization mixer this was a rather tall order. Starting with a small 4×8 matrix with noisy VCAs and limited control, we expanded over the years to ever bigger systems with up to 40 DSP-driven channels and realtime spatialization control.
