Tim Bishop, performance and sound artist and spatial audio designer based in Lund, Sweden.
Creating unique experiences through immersive thinking
Tim Bishop will discuss his use of spatial audio and other immersive technologies in combination with one-to-one performance methodologies. Focusing on recent one-to-one performance Blackout, Tim will present the work’s concept and how technology is used to adapt the experience to each participant. Specific topics covered will include: Tim’s workflows with real-time interactive audio spatialisation inside MaxMSP; the use of ambisonic convolution reverbs to add depth to the experience of virtual spaces, and the use of deliberate sensory gaps to enhance audience immersion and engagement. Tim will also introduce his upcoming project, Sheltered, that uses biometric data to control an immersive art installation exploring climate change through experiential rather than text-based material.

IMMERSIVE DAYS is both a network and a new annual gathering of professional artists, curators, researchers, technicians, teachers and students within a broad field of immersive technologies and (artistic) practices. The initiative functions as a continuation of several symposiums, workshops and research into immersive technologies in art.
Due to the latest developments of Covid-19 and the regional restrictions, the Immersive Days gathering scheduled for November 11-12, 2020 has been postponed until June 2021.
Until then, we invite you to a series of digital lectures and discussions leading up to the gathering in spring.
