Event description

Description

Zaireeka is The Flaming Lips most unique album, and perhaps the most creative use of stereo technology in the 20th century. The music of Zaireeka is revealed when the 4 records or CDs of the piece are played simultanously through four separate stereo systems (this takes 4 people pressing play or dropping the needle at the same time). The overlapping playback produces the complete work of the album. The piece is also a lo-fi nod to spatial music since different sounds will play out of the 8 different speakers needed to hear the whole piece. We upmixed the 4 stereo CDs (8 channels) of this album to play through our 32 speaker listening space, each channel positioned equidistant around the space.

LISTEN is a series of spatial audio compositions, like movies for your ears.

7:30 PM Doors | 8:00 PM Begins

Envelop SF is within The Midway at 900 Marin St, SF CA.

Enter from the Michigan St side of the building, through the patio. Doors close 15 minutes after start time.
All sales are final / no ticket exchanges.

Envelop is a non-profit that amplifies the power of music through immersive audio venues and open source spatial audio software. We believe that immersive experiences of sound and music connect and inspire people on a deeper level, creating shared moments of fully-activated intentional listening. Through Envelop venues, powered by our software Envelop for Live, we host a diversity of events ranging from spatial music performances and listening events, to wellness and 3D audio education. With 32 or more speakers surrounding the audience, Envelop venues allow us to be within the music.
