Envelop's open-source software platform Envelop for Live (E4L) is designed to help non-programmer musicians bring their compositions and performances into a spatial environment. In this workshop we will show you how to use Envelop for Live to create music that uses space as a dynamic compositional element. Within the 32 speakers at Envelop at The Midway, participants will be able to use one of the best spatial audio system in the world to experiment with and learn from. This workshop is taught by Christopher Willits, musician, artist and educator with over 17 years of experience teaching complex creative topics.

Envelop is a non-profit that amplifies the power of music through immersive audio venues and open source spatial audio software.

We believe that immersive experiences of sound and music connect and inspire people on a deeper level, creating shared moments of fully-activated intentional listening. Through Envelop venues, powered by our software Envelop for Live, we host a diversity of events ranging from spatial music performances and listening events, to wellness and 3D audio education. With 32 or more speakers surrounding the audience, Envelop venues allow us to be within the music.
