Quadrophonia is an international festival for free improvisation, experimental surround sound and undefinable sound objects. The festival unites 6 sound artists, electroacoustics, sound researchers, sound designers and musicians of different styles with their very own acoustic concepts for two days.
The festival is conceptually divided into two parts. Part 1: Two collective improvisations involving all the artists using a quadrophonic loudspeaker system. These improvisations unfold according to a time-based score conceived by Michael Ammann. This score defines the three possible states of each artist as either listener, sender or receiver. Part 2: Each artist plays a solo concert followed by a panel discussion with the audience.
