Ganzfeld was founded by Sukandar Kartadinata and Liz Allbee in 2013. Together they comprise a mobile audio spatialization unit featuring hacked & self-built quadraphonic trumpet & quintaphonic bass guitar. They radiate these instrumental voices into space through the use of their homemade dispersive audio system – consisting of self-powered adhesive transducer speakers (at times accompanied with luminescent panels). The duo aims to activate the unique resonant architectures and surfaces of each performance & installation space – windows, doors, stairs, walls, chairs, vents, vans, buses, boxes, insides, outsides, ups and downs – creating a full-field, immersive and musically moving sonic environment.
Automated Peek-a-boo for the surveillance lifestyle. Non-stop stop-action. NO(i)SY NEIGHBOUR animates/amplifies the window dressings for a little song and dance.

Ganzfeld plays the beautiful copper brewery tanks at Kindl. A dream come true for us. (Literally, we talked/dreamed of playing these tanks years ago.) The resonance of each tank is slightly different and wonderfully rich, and the tanks are so conveniently spread throughout the very resonant room itself. The audience is invited to roam the space, stick their heads into the smaller rooms inside the tanks, and what the hell, get a full-body sound vibration experience by laying on the tanks as well! We’re in spatialized heaven!!!

Long-form multi-channel composition in/around the Minibliothek in Stadtpark, Cologne.
Ganzfeld plays a multi-hour 18-channel composition – ”Sound Burrows” – in the small library within the park grounds. Luminescent transducers will sound on the large windows (inside and out), throughout the inside architecture of the libary, and on windows placed nearby in the park. Visitors are invited to wander around outside, or to come inside and relax on one of the cushions.
