MIAP is a new, free, and expanded implementation of Meyer Sound’s SpaceMap abstract spatialization tool implemented as a suite of Max/MSP and Pure Data externals.
From a quick glance at examples and help patches, this seems to be based on the principle of 2D triangulation.
I have written a text for the opening of the exhibition “Lydlandskap” by Line Hvoslef at USF Visningsrommet. In this exhibition Line combines painting, drawing, mechanics, sound and electronics into a really interesting work.
The full text (in Norwegian) can be read here.

ATK for Reaper v. 1.0 beta 4 is now out, and can be downloaded here. This version fix an issue with matrix-based encoders reported to the Reaper forum, and adds a new utility plugin that can be useful when preparing recordings for ambisonic processing.
I have had several questions regarding how to extract the relevant channels from recordings on multichannel portable hard disk recorders. The above screencast illustrates how I am doing this myself.
Lisbeth Bodd of Verdensteatret passed away a week ago. Of all the artistic collaborations I have been fortunate to be a part of, working with Verdensteatret has been one of the most formative for me. I started working with them early on in my career, in the fall of 2000, when the Regla production was turned into an installation for Oslo Open. Subsequently I have been involved in several productions.
There is no end to what I have learned from Verdensteatret regarding collaborative creative processes and how to approach cross-disciplinary projects. These thoughts still form the basis of my working methods. Additional there are all the fond memory of interesting conversations and discussions, friendship, travels, and anecdotes of all sorts. Having known and worked with Lisbeth and the rest of the Verdensteatret collective is one of the great gifts of my life.
An article on the sonozones project has just been published in The Journal for Artistic Research. sonozones was an artistic research project carried out in Mülheim an der Ruhr in the summer of 2013 in collaboration between Jan Schacher, Cathy van Eck, Kirsten Reese and myself.
This project also led to the film installation Muelheim an der Ruhr, August 2013 in collaboration between me and Jan, presented as part of the This must be the place exhibition at KINOKINO Centre for Art and Film and Sandnes kunstforening in the fall 2013. A binaural (headphone) version of this work can be found here.
sonozones. sound art investigations in public places
by Jan Schacher, Cathy van Eck, Kirsten Reese, Trond Lossius
The ‘sonozones’ project investigates sound art practices in public places through personal and public acts of listening and sounding. The topic is explored using artistic processes developed on site in Mülheim in the Ruhr region of central Germany. Four sound art practitioners collaboratively explore ideas and concepts that question the significance and impact of listening and sounding in public places and suburban and urban spaces. The project collects traces and artefacts of the artistic processes as a basis for investigations into key elements of the individual and social dimensions of sound art. The exploration of forms sets the stage for experiments, interventions, and performative presences carried out on site by the artists. A continuous dialogue and the collection of verbal reflections frames these activities. In addition to texts, this exposition lays out a collection of audio recordings, photographs, and videos in order to document and convey sensory experiences as well as thoughts.
