Omniphonium

An instrument that lets you move sound in space

The Omniphonium is an audio controller made for playing with the spatial dimension of sound, meaning where it is coming from in the space. The installation consists of an audio controller in the centre of a space which is surrounded by six speakers. The controller itself displays seven concentric brass rings. Touching and rotating these rings will trigger a sound and allow you to move the sound source around you thanks to the surround speaker setup. It is suitable for musicians, performers, meditation guides or storytellers. One installation that many can experience move and be moved by.
