Etude for Virtual Space
Etude for Virtual Space is an interdisciplinary virtual reality project integrating music and visual design. Four musicians of a string quartet are placed in a virtual environment which the users can navigate to experience interactive sounds, shapes and colours.
The music is based on a collection of sound spectra that stretch, compress or overlap gradually transforming into one another. Musical parameters such as pitch, duration, dynamics and spatialization are mapped to provide visual effects over and around the musicians.
