best multi-speaker-surround-sound performance space New York 2003 - ENGINE 27
Your living room probably has a better sound system than most New York clubs. But if you want to get a true quadra-quadra-quadra-quadra stereo experience, ENGINE 27 has it. Sixteen speakers (each of them with two- or three-way setups) are strewn throughout the space, making for a fascinating variety of aural experiences. Add to that performances by the crème de la crème of avant-music (Pauline Oliveros, Carl Stone, Joan LaBarbara, Elliott Sharp) and Tonic has serious competition.
