In this paper we will report on the use of real-time soundspatialization in Challenging Bodies, a trans-disciplinaryperformance project at the University of Regina. Usingwell-understood spatialization techniques mapped to a custom interface, a computer system was built that allowedlive spatial control of ten sound signals from on-stage performers. This spatial control added a unique dynamic element to an already ultramodern performance. The systemis described in detail, including the main advantages overexisting spatialization systems: simplicity, usability, customization and scalability
