WORLD PREMIERE SEASON – one week remaining
From vibrational energy and utopian impulses to alien abduction, this immersive performance draws together dance, sound, set design and fashion to envelop audiences into an otherworldly, transformative experience.
Choreographers Brooke Stamp and Phillip Adams construct a kinetic space where time is elastic; driven by sublime, generative sound composed and performed by Garth Paine. In the second half – Adams’ Tomorrow – some members of the audience are asked to participate to become part of the installation and performance, creating an architectural abduction experience.
WARNING: This performance contains full nudity and immersive sound effects.
Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF) – RealSpace™ 3D
VisiSonics protected RealSpace™ 3D sound technology provides a truly realistic, as good as being there, experience to listeners equipped only with a standard two channel head phone or earbud device.
RealSpace™ is based on the fact that “humans have just two ears but can locate sounds in three dimensions from all directions (including above and below, front and rear, and to either side). This is possible because the brain and the ear work together to process information to infer from where sounds emanate. Because individuals vary in terms of the shapes of their heads and ears, the HRTF will depend on the dimensions of the individual listener. Recordings processed via an HRTF which approximates your own physical characteristics can be listened to on stereo headphones and interpreted as if they were comprised of sounds coming from all directions, rather than just two points on either side of your head. The perceived accuracy of the result depends on how closely the HRTF data set matches the characteristics of your own ears.”
