Variações sobre Espaço is a series of studies/compositions about composing music in contexts where several reverberation times coexist. Wallace is a digital application I developed in MaxMSP, which takes incoming sound and makes it "travel" through multiple speakers. Each speaker is assigned to a different reverberation character (IR) but it can be changed in real time. The path and the speed used to make the sound "travel", the sound gesture, the pitch and the tempo are some of the variables to structure a composition.
