Surround Piano I

This is an environmental piece created for an art exhibition with procedural, generative, digital art. The original audio project can run and evolve for days or weeks without ever repeating.
This is a 27 minute excerpt.

The original is endless, ever changing, self similar, fractal in nature and can be made to react to outside events...

You can think of it as the acoustic "stage-design" for the gallery rooms.

This version was created for a 4.1 / 5.1 loudspeaker setup, but the piece as such can be adapted to any number of speakers.

The pre-listening tracks you see above are a normal stereo mixdown and a binaural encoded stereo version for listening with headphones. Both are 24 bit / 48 kHz.

The full multichannel surround version comes as a bonus item in 16Bit, 48khz FLAC. Encoding is L, R, C, LFE, LS, RS.
(Center isn't actually used in this case).
