ARTIST TALK / SOUND INSTALLATION / LIVE VR PERFORMANCE

4-5pm Artist Talk & Installation; 5, 5:30, 6, 6:30 Performances

Telepresence is a Virtual Realty piece created by sound and media artists Kiran Bhumber and Nancy Lee, and featuring Vancouver-based trumpet player JP Carter. Telepresence seeks to redefine conventions of the concert setting by reversing the hierarchy between visual and audio elements within a virtual performance environment. The virtual reality experience utilizes volumetric filmmaking techniques, generative and animated visualizations. However, unlike traditional VR, the audience will be united through a sound world that consists of a live instrumental performance diffused through a brand new octophonic speaker system.

Lee and Bhumber discuss their artistic processes in an artist talk starting at 4pm, sound installation to follow. To register for a demo performance, select a time-slot here >>
