Ambisonic Toolkit for Reaper - Links to download


Unfortunately the Ambisonic Toolkit website has been down for several weeks. This is due to server problems that have turned out to be hard to resolve. Hopefully it will be fixed in the not to far future.

In the meantime, direct links to the latest version (1.0.0.b6) can be found here:

Creating QuickTime movies with surround sound


For both of my two recent installations, at Heimdal kunstforening (opened last Saturday) and Vestlandsutstillingen (opens tomorrow), I use surround sound synced to videos.

Initially I was looking into possibilities for using BluRay for playback, but it turned out that BluRay authoring is difficult, expensive, and with tight deadlines possibly risky, in particular when going beyond 5.1 surround. Authoring 7.1 surround would require the rather expensive DTS-HD Master Audio Suite for lossless encoding of audio, as well as the discontinued Adobe Encore program, and then it might be psosible to do — or not.

Instead I ended up using Mac minis for playback. It turns out that QuickTime supports surround sound with up to 24 channels. I did a bit of googling to figure out how to do this, and it seems to work out well. In the above screencast I show how to go about making a video with 6 channels (L – R – SL – SR – SBLSBR), and set up OSX to play them back properly.

Thanks to Gisle Tveito for getting me on the right track!

Installing for Vestlandsutstillingen



Yesterday I went to Øystese to set up a new installaiton version of Muelheim an der Ruhr, August 2013 for Vestlandsutstillingen. This time it is presented as a living room installation. Over the next half year it will be touring Kabuso in Øystese, Sogn og Fjordane kunstmuseum in Førde, Kube in Ålesund and Kunsthall Stavanger.

We’ve had the most gorgeous winter weather for the past few weeks, and the drive to Øystese was was really beautiful.




And just to make the day perfect, Kabuso was 10 years yesterday. That was duly celebrated.


The opening is tomorrow, Saturday, at 1300.
