Marcin Pączkowski collaborates on a concert in Octave 9, Seattle Symphony's new facility

DXARTS Alumnus and Research Associate, Marcin Pączkowski, has collaborated with the Seattle Symphony’s 2018-19 composer in residence Derek Bermel on a performance at the Symphony’s new Octave 9 facility.

“One of the things we can do with the space is put everyone inside the orchestra, so to speak,” Pączkowski said. “We can have the orchestra sounds coming from all around the audience. This is, I think, fairly compelling because you can’t actually experience that yourself unless you actually play in the orchestra. … (The facility) will allow us to create something that I don’t think you can experience anywhere else. This is very intriguing.”
