ECHO::Improvisations (2014) is a mixed-reality performance environment bringing together live instrumental performers and digital performers within the ECHO::Canyon game environment.
Musical synthesis processes are controlled by players in ECHO::Canyon, with ambisonic spatialization moving their musical sound throughout a multi-channel speaker environment. Situated within the speaker field are "real-world" instrumental performers who engage the motion and sonic output of avatars as equals.
This performance of ECHO::Improvisations features ECHO improvisation with Stefan Östersjö (guitar), Henrik Frisk (saxophone), Chrysi Nanou (piano), Chris Chafe (celleto) and Rob Hamilton (electronics/video).
