Horizon: Spatial Audio Performance w/ Christopher Willits
Christopher shares his album Horizon within Envelop at The Midway, one of the spatial audio listening spaces that he directs and co-founded through Envelop.
This is an incredibly special moment, to hear a new pioneering album in spatial audio, performed within an intimate 32 speaker sound space, that allows the design and intention of the music to be fully felt.
This event includes a meet and greet with Christopher before the event and a Q/A following the performance. Attendees will have a front row seat into the process of Horizon, Christopher's process, the story of Envelop, and the music itself.
Limited GA tickets available for this unique evening of immersive music. There will be tea and drinks available for purchase before and after the music begins.
