The spatial sound lab at Fraunhofer IMK.VE
MetadataShow full item record
Sound in VR, generally a sidekick to the visual presentation, i s a central issue in the ongoing VR opera production within the project ``Digitales Beethoven-Haus'' at Fraunhofer IMK. To be able to answer the technological and artistic questions brought up by such an endeavour, a lab room was established allowing for high quality immersive VR for both sound and image at the same time. Strategies were developed to successfully stage a piece of classical music within a virtual environment, allowing the audience to interact with the virtual world in an interesting way while being faithful to the musical performance that forms the basis of what is audible.
