Collide - Dolby Gallery


We developed and executed this “virtual to reality” audio concept as the soundtrack to the installation “Collide”, which was displayed in the Dolby Gallery in San Francisco, CA, as a collaboration with the visual-coding studio onformative.

In short, we wrote an open musical composition for three cellists, using a modified version of the visuals to conduct the score. Each cellist saw only a section of the film through VR goggles and had to react to the “visual timbre” while playing the composition. We then composed the final soundtrack based on the recording.

The final 3D-Mix on Dolby Atmos (54 speakers in addition to 17 subs) at Dolby Laboratories in San Francisco made it possible to spatially link events in the film with the individual dynamics of the cello recordings.
