The purpose of this thesis portfolio project is to broaden the population of surround sound listeners and producers by presenting an eight-song album of multi-channel audio in the form of Pro Tools session files, so that people who own a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) and an audio interface with more than two outputs are encouraged to set up their own three, four, or five-channel surround sound environment with equipment they already have at home. This is both an experiment in audio advocacy, and a showcase of my best production work. The idea is that while 5.1-channel surround sound is already in place in home theater and elsewhere, there still exists a growing and untapped population of people who have a basic home studio setup that they have not yet realized allows for playback and creation of multi-channel audio. All that these end users must do to listen to my project (and begin mixing in surround sound themselves) is plug in anywhere from one to three additional speakers to their audio interface's additional outputs, put my data DVD in their disc drive, and open the appropriate session files for the number of speakers they have. There they will find multi-channel stems of all the different instruments and vocals from my recordings, pre-routed and mixed for their surround sound enjoyment. If they would like to make changes, such as moving the location of an element in the mix, they can do so freely. Now, the artist's foot is in the door, and the hope is that they will be inspired to create and share surround mixes of their own using their new home setup. The written portion of this thesis presents further explanation and justification for the project idea, as well as thorough documentation of how the end product was created.
