FutureSound and the pioneering spatial audio musician and composer Junkerry announce Amaurosis. A one-of-a-kind event devoted to the exploration of spatial sound, Amaurosis will take place at the ground-breaking EartH Theatre in Hackney on December 6th.
Jimmy Kyriacou, the founder of FutureSound is dedicated to showcasing the incredible potential of music through uniting industry thought leaders, innovators and the passionately curious. FutureSound have collaborated with professional sound system manufacturer L-Acoustics and EartH to curate an event offering a deeper understanding of spatial sound and its capabilities.
Amaurosis will feature the unique 40-minute 360° sound experience in the dark by Junkerry using EartH’s state-of-the-art L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology. This conceptual performance will see the audience wear blindfolds and surrounded by the high intensity sound system – taking a hiatus from the world, floating metaphorically into a new space. The underlying theme is The Art of Listening, with the project taking its name from the condition Amaurosis Fugax; a temporary loss of vision, due to tired or overworked eyes, where vision switches off momentarily.
A composer, musician and producer who fuses cutting edge technology with her music to tell stories in innovative ways, Junkerry composes, records and produces everything at her 3D audio studio. Recognised as an artist at the frontier of spatial sound since 2014, Junkerry has worked with the Royal College of Art, Google, King’s College, NASA, the International Planetarium Society, Lucy Hardcastle Studio, the V&A Museum and many more.
FutureSound will also welcome Guillaume Le Nost, Managing Director, L-Acoustics who will showcase the latest developments in spatial audio and the next dimension for live and virtual events. There will be a surprise guest speaker at the event.
