Research and Creation of Ambisonics System in Taiwan Sound Lab and Audio-Visual Presentation with Head-Mounted Display

This project, Artificial Nature - Research and Creation of Ambisonics System in Taiwan Sound Lab and Audio-Visual Presentation with Head-Mounted Display, highlights the sensory experiences of music and sound immersion. Reflection and thought on participatory experiences of listening to the composer’s instrumental and electronic music works and viewing various artworks are encouraged. Moreover, through her research on Ambisonics system in spaces, she explores the subject-object relationship between immersive works and audiences and natural auditory experiences and artificial interpretation. The aim of this project is to provide listeners with “real and unreal” experiences. Esthetic thought is stimulated through the collision of what is expected based on our senses and what is experienced when there is sensory distortion. Moreover, an attempt is made to create a sound-driven thought model using audio-visual and multi-sensory works.
