Sound Imaginations: Immersive Sound and Video Installation
February 12, 2020
Wednesday, 12:00-12:50 P.M.
Music Rehearsal Hall, ARTS 157
Free and open to the campus
The immersive sound and video installation Sound Imaginations – at the UCR Culver Center of the Arts, February 29-March 8 – investigates listening cultures in different geographic and cultural contexts by exploring relationships between sound, image, space, and culture. It was developed during my three years of Senior Residence at the UCR Center for Ideas and Society. This immersive multimedia event built on the Black Box consists of a multi-channel surrounding sound projection – 8 speakers – and a multi-visual projection – 1 large screen and 8 monitors. Immersed in the audio-visual environment, the audience will experience a diversity of listening cultures from many different places. The installation presents recording of ambisonics sound and 360 video made in Riverside (CA), São Paulo (Brazil), Moscow (Russia), Pune (India) and Mannheim (Germany). The synchrony and asynchrony between image and sound create a myriad of relationships such as conformity, contesting, complementarity, oppositions, ambiguities, and so on. It develops a universe of real and virtual sound imaginations. Link to the event: https://artsblock.ucr.edu/Exhibition/sound-imaginations.
