Future Perfect and EcoRift are VR works by Garth Paine.  In this talk Paine will discuss the experience of Place within VR and his development of ambisonic tools for Unity 3D.  He will outline his current collaboration with IRCAM/ZKM on a new 360 immersive VR concert work, Future Perfect, which will use personal smart phones to provide a VR image space supported by HOA Ambisonic and WFS soundfields. The Ambisonic audio will provide a detailed ambient whist the WFS will permit sounds to follow and be passed between individuals.  Smart phone tracking will facilitate sound exchange and vector lines to be drawn between individuals.

EcoRift focuses on bringing the national parks of SW American into hospitals, schools and homes of people across the globe. Democratizing access whilst also augmenting social impact of these magnificent environments through applications in wellbeing, post surgery recovery and education.

Both works will be presented. The talk will finish with a small performance utilizing your smartphone – so please bring it along…
