2 x 3 Kanal is a sound piece comprising two separate three-channel compositions, one rotating clockwise and the other counter-clockwise so as to create an audible movement circling around the work's three outward-facing loudspeakers. Depending on their acoustic focus, listeners will hear one or the other part of the work, or a mix of both. This perceptual conflict – which derives from the intensities of auditory and spatial movement – is here dramatically intensified. This sensorial interrelation echoes James J. Gibson’s concept of “active listening” as the idea that “one does not hear, one listens”. In this sense, this piece “dramatises” the notion that gathering perceptual information is an active process. The second part of this piece offers yet another perspective on spatial movement and perceived localisation. It juxtaposes the seemingly ascending high pitch of a sound object with a sequence of tones as described as part of the Tritone Paradox by Diana Deutsch in 1986. By doing so, it adds vertical dimensions to the previously mentioned horizontal rotations, while questioning the role/validity of auditory scene analysis as developed by Albert Bregman (1994).
