In 1989, Luigi Nono composed La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura, an epic work for solo violin, magnetic tape, and eight loudspeakers. In 2012, composer Wouter Snoei and top violinist Barbara Lüneburg take this composition one step further in a live interpretation using the Wave Field Synthesis system on 192 speakers. This amazing system enhances the spatial aspects of Nono's composition. The original sounds, recorded by Nono in the studio, have the same freedom of movement in the room as the violinist. Perhaps as Nono intended whereas the means to realize this did not yet exist.
This is followed by two compositions by Ji Youn Kang: "SiNaWi" and Enfolding Plane II"
