Hot Summer Afternoon: Towards the Embodiment of Musical Expression in Virtual Reality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Hot Summer Afternoon is a sound performance which uses VR as
performance space. The new controller-free hand tracking feature of
Oculus Quest allows users to monitor their hands inside of the VR world.
Some hand gestures as well as the position of spawned objects in VR are
mapped with different sound parameters using machine learning. The aim
of this project is to explore the embodiment of the performer’s musical
expression with hands inside of the immersive virtual environment.
