"Since when we first started playing in the studio, we imagined our music to be a multi-channel experience.
The nature of our pieces doesn't follow any static rule about the positioning of sounds in the audio field."

If felt like a natural choice for Patrick Leonard and Diego Stocco to team with DTS, Inc., 
DTS wanted them to be the first musical project being mixed with their new Neo:X 11.1 surround sound system.

The music played in this video is part of longer tracks that Patrick and Diego improvised.
The video, mixed in 11.1 is featured by DTS during their CES 2011 presentation.
The press release is

Patrick playing his Steinway on the track "Absurdo", the first piece in the video.
Diego playing the light bulb on the track "Absurdo".
Detail of the light bulb. There's a Røde Lavalier mike right inside the light bulb to capture the
sound of the filament. Diego first created sounds out of light bulbs in 2007 when he was working on the sounds of Omnisphere.
Screenshot of Ableton Live, the DAW Diego uses for recording and live looping.
These are the controllers Diego uses to create the real-time sound design processing.
Patrick and Diego are not using any synthesizer during these performances, the sound of the piano, the tree and the custom built instruments are all being transformed in real-time into soundscapes and rhythms.
Patrick listening to Diego's introduction of the piece "Two Trees", the second piece in the video.
Diego playing a little twig with a piano hammer on the track "Two Trees".

Patrick and Diego would like to thank Apogee for providing them the new Symphony I/O.
Diego's setup required a large number of routing options since every element was recorded into
a separate track. The Symphony I/O worked perfectly, as well as sounding exceptional.
