Martin Rumori: GROMA - Programming a permanent multichannel sound installation

In this paper I shall be addressing some of the more complex issues of developing the technical framework for the permanent urban sound installation GROMA, which incorporates environmental sounds from two partner cities of Cologne, Rotterdam and Li├Ęge, combined with ancient texts about urbanisation. This installation has been inaugurated in 2008 at the location of Europe's largest underground parking lot in Cologne. The programming environment Supercollider was used for realising the algorithmic rules of the score and a flexible routing scheme for multichannel sound distribution.
