IKO/OSIL Symposium & Summer School Sept. 10th - 14th 2018 Graz



to our IKO summer school and symposium scheduled for Sept. 10th to 14th 2018.


It finalizes our compact spherical loudspeaker array research from the past 4 years:

Orchestrating Space by Icosahedral Loudspeaker (OSIL).


In the 2-day symposium there'll be the opportunity to learn where our artistic, psycho-acoustic, and audio-technical journey took us to.


Within the 3-day summer school preceding the symposium, it is possible to work and experiment with the 3 IEM Icosahedral Loudspeakers (IKO).The idea for the schedule is mentioned below.

There will be enough time for discussion and exchange of concepts and ideas in between.


We will work at Ligeti Hall and an orchestra rehearsal room at MUMUTH, so all is set for a fruitful gathering. -


And we will have IKO1, IKO2, IKO3, and our new loudspeaker cubes to play with.



To sign up for the symposium, please notify Gerriet K. Sharma or Franz Zotter.


We are looking forward to welcoming you in Graz!


Kind regards,
