First, there was live music, the sound of voices and instruments radiating toward our ears. Much later, stereo and multi- channel recording added new dimensions to the sounds.
Now comes a new ‘instrument’ that is the concert hall itself. It’s called the ‘Cube.’ It’s part of the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech and there’s nothing quite like it anywhere else in the world.
With it’s nearly 150 speakers embedded in the 4 walls, the ceiling and floor, this concert hall sized instrument is so new, there’s barely any music created that can be played in it.
