What role can VR play in emerging audiovisual art? Additionally, what does VR have to offer as a new interface for creation?


Resound is a multichannel audiovisual environment for both creation and experience. Resound allows the user to compose sound in three dimensional space using hand controllers and gesture, generating a visual score that is part of his or her experience. Instead of using a classical channel-based approach to sound design, Resound uses a powerful sound-object methodology to assign sound behaviors to objects in virtual reality. By treating a virtual environment as both an experience and working tool, Resound creates an enchanted world to compose 3D music in, engaging the viewer through more aesthetic and immersive tools.
