The immersive virtual musical orchestra

The field of Virtual Reality offers new possibilities for music performance. For example, 3D objects and scenes may be used to visualize sound processes and parameters in new ways. 3D interaction techniques and immersion of musicians may enable new musical gestures. Immersion the audience may help them understand musical performances. Finally, collaboration techniques developed in this field may be used for musical collaboration. However, all these techniques and metaphors have to be adapted in order to match the constraints musical interaction. During this talk, I will first present the research done on these issues at the LaBRI within the INRIA Potioc and Sound Computing teams. Then I will describe the "Immersive virtual musical orchestra" project. The main idea is to explore the implementation of musical collaboration modes, as used in both acoustic orchestras and electronic orchestras such as the SLOrk, in an immersive virtual environment.

Florent Berthaut is a lecturer at the University of Bordeaux 1, France and researcher within the INRIA Potioc and Sound Computing teams. He received a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bordeaux 1 in October 2010. His research works are mainly focused on the use of Mixed/Virtual Reality and 3D Interaction for music performance.
