The White Circle is an installation that contains the crowd in a white glowing arch with up to 47 strategically placed speakers in a way to like the visual space to their musical concepts. The sound set up cam from ZKM sound dome and is used in such a way that by turning the speakers on and of in such a way to create that the listener had the chance to experience the sound rather than just listen to it. All kinds of effects can then be created, from doppler to natural phasing.
