Redefining 5.1 : The Experience
A room will be set up with a speaker in each corner. The center of the space will be empty, except for a pair of chairs with revolving capabilities. Both attendees can choose to sit or stand.
The two attendees will receive a set of enhanced wireless headphones that tracks head movement. These headphones are not noise–cancelling, thus allowing ambient room sound to enter the ears.
Music, specially mixed for the space, will appear intermittently in each of the four speakers and in the headphones. Throughout each musical piece, the music will encourage attendees to move in the room. When they do, the phones' head tracking system will trigger audio effects/mixes according to the user's interaction.
Each installation experience will last between ten and fifteen minutes.
