Double Quadrophonic Diptych in 3 Movements, 2012
8-channel speaker system 

RICHARD GARET AND DANIEL NEUMANN 

In this collaborative performance each of the artists is using two speakers to create a spontaneous intertwined sonic field.

Garet's approach will focus on computer processing from sonic material such as electromagnetic waves, modified tape, cracked media, sonification of light, and field recordings. This sonic construction will surface in real-time creating a poly-layered field where the final outcome consists of the materials being carefully treated, weighed, measured.

Neumann’s sound material stems mostly from synthesized sources (analog and digital) and has then been exposed to various processes including filtering, layering and re-recording in different physical spaces or through modified media, like speaker distortion, and others, accumulating over time.

Processed files provide each artist with a vocabulary with which they play out the speaker locations in relation to the architecture and to each other.
