Open G records present Music in the Constellation: an immersive in-person audio experience, an invitation to our community to engage in National Sawdust’s performance space and explore the possibilities and nuances of our cutting-edge sound technology. Composer Greg Wilder and our Director of Sound and Technical Design Garth MacAleavey have taken a tour of contemporary electronic music using the full array of speakers that make up National Sawdust’s Meyer Sound Constellation.

From works written for a single moving speaker to music harnessing the entire 102-speaker Constellation, visitors will experience the depth and depth of true spatial sound. This free audio tour includes the world premiere of a new 360-degree realization of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s 1955 work “Gesang der Jünglinge” and a new stereophonic immersive audio track, built from the original tape transfers, of the great composer and rock artist Frank Zappa. Join us to experience the full Meyer Sound Constellation and its groundbreaking Spacemap sound design.

Major institutional support for the 2021-2022 season of The Future Is… at National Sawdust is provided by private support from the Howard Gilman Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, Alphadyne Foundation, from the Art Mentor Foundation, Citi and the Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trust and with public support from the New York State Council for the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council , in addition to strong support from the National Sawdust Board of Directors. National Sawdust is a proud partner of Meyer Sound Experience.
