MANTIS (Manchester Theatre in Sound) biannually presents concerts of music and sound, featuring compositions and performances enhanced by the use of new technology and digital media. MANTIS combines a broad array of sonic events, which range from the live diffusion of acousmatic works on a 48-loudspeaker sound system (using the unique MANTIS System), to Live Instrumental and Electronics events involving large ensemble groups on stage (the MANTIS Battle of Gestures and Textures for voice, acoustic instruments and electronics).
MANCHESTER'S SONIC META-ONTOLOGY PROJECT
MANTIS Sonic Meta-ontology encapsulates a number or newly created compositions, sonic events and ambisonics field recording trips across the City of Manchester and the North West.
'Manchester's Sonic Meta-ontology' will explore whether there is really such thing as a 'Manchester sound' and if so, what is it, can we experience it, and can we understand it? Substantive empirical investigation will be in partnership will local agents and artists in the region, which will look into the creation, identity, and survival of the real truth of Manchester's Sound.
