To mark its opening in Spring 2011, the TAI Studio hosted 4for8, a public concert for electro-acoustic music. The event was divided into two parts, the 4for8 concert with works for 8 loudspeakers, each lasting 4 minutes, followed by two livecoding performances. Because of the very positive feedback, we consider to repeat it on an (ir)regular basis.
