Zemi17 and David Last at Auditorium

Auditorium is a new music series for lovers of ambient music presented in 8.4 surround sound, produced and curated by Kevin Balktick and Aaron Taylor Kuffner.

The goal of the music series is two folded. Firstly it seeks to showcase an under-seved genre of music in a proper immersive setting optimal for both performer and audience. It secondly attempts to create a community centered around relaxation and beauty using the techniques often employed by warehouse parties and raves.

Auditorium seeks out unique venues, often old churches, and presents a nightly line up of artists performing on an uber surround sound system of Kuffner's design, that utilizes 8 1000 watt full range speakers arranged in a circle on the parameter of the space facing in and 4 2000w bass bins in the center of the room facing out. Each artist performs in the middle of the room, and has the option of presenting work through 4 or 8 channels, or having Kuffner specialize different frequencies to move throughout the space in quantized motions. Audience members sit on rugs and pillows wrapping around the artists on all sides in different unconventional venues.
