Composing space: immersion and interaction in a large scale virtual audiovisual installation

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

This presentation outlines approaches to composing space through and for immersion and interaction in w[i]nd (Rawlinson, 2020), an interactive and generative audio-visual composition / installation in procedural and orchestrated space. This project aims to be a rich and playfully immersive visual and sound art experience in a large-scale first-person Virtual Environment (VE). The VE consists of a labyrinthine array of audio-visual exhibits of synthesised images and 3D models of wind instruments coupled with samples of physically modelled synthesis and processed acoustic recordings that exhibit a range of characteristics of augmentation and abstraction. The work explores mediated spatial perceptual experience, open sonic form, timbre and character in non-linear interactive experiences and contributes to research into the use of sound and sounding objects as an approach to presence and immersion, orientation, navigation, interaction and ‘ergodic musicking’ [Oliva, 2019] in VEs.
