SURROUND SOUND CONCERTS
In a darkened room or theater, Block works with a laptop and mixing desk, diffusing composed sounds live through multiple speakers surrounding the audience. Each concert is presented in the tradition of Cinéma Pour Les Oreilles--an immersive, non narrative or abstract soundtrack with no cinematic images.
Compositions can be presented and diffused in various configurations, customized to fit 4 to16 channels/speakers.
Block prepares for each concert for hours on site, changing each composition, sometimes drastically, to suit the room and occasion.
Recent compositions presented in live multichannel/multispeaker format include
