Making Waves: Listen(n) with Garth Paine (Audio)
Garth Paine is an Australian composer and interactive media artist teaching at Arizona State University. Upon his first visit to Arizona he became fascinated with the soundscapes of the deserts of the American south west and from this interest he formed a community-engaged research team to study and document the soundscapes of national monument parks in close distance to Phoenix. One of the many outcomes of Listen(n) is a Virtual Reality sound installation which allows listeners to experience these unique soundscapes in a surprisingly life-like way with the simple combination of a 360 degree photograph and an ambisonic soundscape recording. New Adventures in Sound Art is hosting their VR work as part of its Listen In exhibition in South River, Canada.
