Speaker Park is a concert installation, which aims to bring together the openness, spatial and explorative qualities of a park, with the sonic and sensory detail of a state of the art cinematic production.
The installation it’s self comprises 24 highly unique, hand-made speakers, which form an unconventional sound system, designed for the composition and re-production of original 24-channel compositions within an engaging visual landscape.

"It feels inclusive and broad like a four-lane motorway. Speaker Park is recommended for everyone!"
Simon Cummings, 5:4
"While elaborate multi-channel speaker setups continue to be regarded by rather too many as the ne plus ultra of electronic music presentation, things here were more than a little different – for the better"
From 2024, as part of the continuation of Speaker Park, Wrap encourages composers to apply for a residency to compose a piece for Speaker Park. There is no deadline for this application. The residency might not happen on a yearly basis, but there can be one residency per year. The residency offers a two week period of space and technical assistance to work with the installation in the big project room at Wrap.

Speaker Park Symposium
The symposium is a celebration, update and further development of Speaker Park. Speaker Park consists of 24 speakers, and is an installation where you can move in sound and space. At the symposium there will be recorded performances, live performances of a new work composed for speaker park, and a performance of a choreography in the installation. There will also be lectures and conversations about the ideas and technology behind the project.
