Klangdom demonstration and concert
Works by Ludger Brümmer, Robert Normandeau and Robin Minard.
The newly built Klangdom at the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics is an
instrument unique throughout the world, for spatializing music and sound. More
than thirty loudspeakers hang three-dimensionally in the space on an elliptical
rig system, with additional ones set up on the floor. This enables surround-sound
listening that far outshines Dolby-Surround.
