Continuing the studio’s explorations into new forms of audiovisual synaesthetic experience, Universal Everything poses the question: how does it feel to step Inside the Sound?
Inside the Sound is the start of an ongoing series of immersive 360º environments that embraces the potential of VR. Each of the six environments takes the form of an infinitely looping audiovisual creation, which visualises the sensations triggered by its sounds, allowing the viewer to explore a multisensory space in ways only achievable in 360º.
The soundtracks are composed by long term Universal Everything collaborator Simon Pyke. They each have a sensation of intensifying drama, created using a technique called Shepard tone, an auditory illusion in which sounds appear to continually ascend in pitch.
Best viewed at maximum resolution in VR or with Google Cardboard viewer. Videos courtesy of Universal Everything, apologies for the YouTube compression!
