Music Machine 31 - 60x60 Surround Sound Mix

Music Machine 31 forms part of an hour long piece curated by Hans Tammen for Vox Novus:

60×60 is a one-hour-long show made by sequencing 60 pre-recorded pieces by 60 different composers, each piece a minute in length or shorter. A unique collaboration between VoxNovus / Robert Voisey and Harvestworks in New York City to create a 5.1 surround sound mix, this 60×60 presentation will be premiered at Harvestworks’ multichannel TEAMLab listening room

It was first perfomed at Harvestworks in New York on May 16th 2014 and later at the Jack Straw New Media Gallery in Seatle on 29th October 2014.
