CHRIS SPEED/ LIVE AV
MUTABLE VR performance
Mutable VR is an immersive installation and live audiovisual performance in which 360 spatial sound is controlled within virtual reality. Conceptually inspired by wave–particle duality in quantum mechanics and posthuman phenomenology, this project explores an embodied experience of microsound.
This piece is a culmination of Chris Speed’s work exploring themes of duality, embodiment and abstraction, the title itself is taken from the programming term “Mutable” (a changeable object). The artwork combines the latest VR technology with custom software to connect real time particle simulations to music and redefine how we perceive our bodies within virtual worlds.
