Audium is the only theater of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theater's 176 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. "Sound sculptures" are performed in darkness in the 49-seat...more
We enjoyed this since it is so very different than anything else. There were two parts, each about 20 minutes long. For us, that was the right amount of time. My only comment is that it was a bit confusing as to when to arrive...More
Its an amazing space and experience. The composers were happy to chat after about their work. The sounds flow and fly around you in darkness via 100+ speakers. It's on Fridays and Saturdays - I went twice!
We went as a group to the early showing. Get there a little early for a pre admission treat. Then relax and close your eyes. Take in this unique audio experience, from this father/son duo of audiophile inspiration. Make sure to sit in back row.
Audium-Theater of Sound-Sculptured space is amazing. This was an impressive event, you need to go open-minded and enjoy sound labyrinth. It's artistic, not a concert. It's trippy listening to this in the dark. This experience truly blew my mind. It is a worthwhile auditory experience.

Yeah... you checked the concept and say "wow that really cool man!'. I did the same.
But once there, you'll be disappointed cause the realization isn't as cool as the concept.
You'll be happy to get in discovering the 'room' but you'll be happy to...More
Like nothing else, entering a spacious room on a weekend evening and the lights go down and then a musical trip is played throughout the 200 plus speakers with sounds dancing around the room...! Music/random sounds, the whole gamut, fantastic!
