Space is an essential part of any musical performance: it can refer to the spatial dimensions of a musical composition, the acoustic room in which the performance takes place or the physical space in which the performer operates. Today’s electroacoustic repertoires frequently contain manipulation of (either physical or virtual) space or acoustic qualities, which sets new requirements as to the capabilities of the performers. This leads one to ask what these requirements may be and how performers and composers can best meet them. Can the space itself form part of the structure of a composition and/or performance? This chapter explores these questions through a composition case study, Climb!, from the perspective of a composer-performer.
