VR PERFORMANCE ~ Banff Center, CANADA and DorkBot, USA.

Ablaze was a performance that featured audio-reactive visuals set in virtual reality. Digital sounds were triggered during a live drum kit performance, the audio then generated real-time abstract visuals.

Ablaze was inspired by Isaac Asimov’s sci-fi literary series, Foundation, in which a character created light forms in 3D space. This work was created using TouchDesigner, Ableton Live, Oculus RIFT and acoustic Drum kit with triggers.
