On Sound: New music is not made up of some undiscovered arrangements of notes. New music is created by innovative people and their ‘instruments’ – new sounds, inspired and excited by unique control, and process. The spatial cues in mono, stereo and multi-channel formats provide yet another opportunity to expand the paradigm of playback.
