Stuttgart, Germany (September 6, 2006)–Apogee garnered attention as the cornerstone technology in Daniel Teige and Martin Rumori’s second installment of 16:9, the acclaimed interactive sound installation at the World New Music Festival 2006, which showcased this summer in Stuttgart, Germany.
The 16:9 interactive sound installation Using Apogee’s Symphony PCI-Express Cards, Apogee DA-16X converters, a Power Mac G5 and custom designed interface and software, the installation created a platform upon which all technologies worked in concert to form a speaker canvas empowering each participant to become a painter of sound.

Daniel Teige, sound artist/composer/software developer, elaborated:
“…We used two Apogee Symphony Cards and four DA-16Xs with the new Apple G5. During the festival people were constantly using our system for more than 12 hours a day. Side view with Apogee unitThe installation was running day and night for three weeks without any problems. Right now we are working on a big exhibition with up to seven single canvases. Since this system just works so well, Apogee will be my choice! Apogee together with Apple Computers is what I call sophisticated hardware setup.”

Sound Art, often equated with spatial installation and sculpture, is a unique amalgamation of the arts in 16:9 as it converges with painting. Using a portable interface, sounds can be mixed and freely spatialized on a 60-channel speaker canvas of several square meters by painting with colors on a handheld touchscreen.
