This is a live screening that took place at the Screening Room in Kingston, Ontario. It features visual 3D radio clips on the meaning of music, as collected by my friend and colleague Chris Trimmer. 3D space is navigated using three.js pointer lock controls. Audio is emitted using webAudio panner nodes, each surrounded by a large flat disk. Sound emanating from within the disk is not audible outside the disk. A strong prevalent drone exists throughout the scene, originating from the top of a central tower. Each disk is mixed based on the position of the user. Other audio effects are also employed, such as a low pass filter when the perspective drops below the randomly meshed floor.
