DOADOA Archive 2018 Design and Production of Immersive Audio and Visual Works Workshop

Design and Production of Immersive Audio and Visual Works Workshop


A first introduction to the production of immersive installations (audio/visual), to cater for both the art world and the music industry. This workshop will guide you through the use of static imagery (drawings – graphics – designs – patterns) to create animation and motion graphics through software (Resolume) to design a light and visual show synced to specific sounds. We will also elaborate on ideas to design and create an immersive space for an event, by exploring materials and tools (multi screens -transparency – projectors – triple matrox head) and the dynamics of architecture, audience’s movement and stage requirements, to shift and transform our experience as an artist and as a viewer from a front stage to a surrounding environment.

The Participants engaging in the workshop during the day will see their imagery used in the evening to produce a visual environment for the performances of musicians and Djs. They can also help on the set-up of the projectors and screens to fit the different venues for the after-parties so they can engage in stage design.

Objectives of the Workshop

To understand the benefits of designing and creating immersive spaces to make, join in the process with visual artists, dancers and sound makers and to the experience of audiences.

To discover the use of software Resolume for the purpose of audio visual installation from the art world to the music industry.
