NOISE: Non-ocular immersion and spatial emergence


This research project is focused on creating an array that traverses sound, haptics and distinct modes of lighting. The goal is to create a system that can explore spatial gestures across these modalities, and the sense of emergent structure that can manifest across the senses in differing performative contexts, including the Deep Listening Entanglements project, the Doug Van Nort Electro-Acoustic Orchestra and various telematic performance settings.  The project includes distinct approaches to spatial control of ambisonic sound and virtual acoustics, custom interactive lightboxes and a large, high density haptic floor that supports experiments focused on full-bodied listening (e.g. with soles of feet).
