"Sounds in Focus" presents a selection of works from artists around the world, played on the 24.4 channel Genelec system in the Perform Studio of the Moss Arts Center. The Perform Studio is a smaller, more intimate performance space that is ideal for precise and detailed listening to multichannel music.

Guests who attend concerts in both Perform Studio and the Cube will develop a deeper appreciation for the range of artistic expression possible in different multichannel formats. Participants of Sounds in Focus include Judith Shatin, Pinda Ho, Eric Simonson, Qi Mengjie, Michael Rhoades, Kotoka Suzuki, and Robert McClure.

General admission tickets are $10.00 and free for Virginia Tech students.

Cube Fest 2018, occurring from August 9–12, 2018, is a spatial music festival with performances for the public and a VIP package of hands-on, behind-the-scenes, and creative opportunities for fellow revolutionists. Cube Fest brings together a group of 20 international audio technology experts, computer engineers, music technology experts, musicians, and composers who will present performances of original compositions created for the Cube and preexisting works, including music by the late David Bowie.

Virginia Tech’s Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) is on the front line leading a revolution in sound with a unique resource at their fingertips—the Cube in the Moss Arts Center. A four-story, high-tech venue and laboratory, the Cube is outfitted with 149 multichannel audio speakers, a robust motion capture system, and a two-story tall, 360-degree immersive projection screen called the Cyclorama, making it the only facility of its kind in the world. Artists, musicians, scientists, and researchers from around the globe visit the Cube to be part of this revolution.
