Artist Statement:


    Telepresence is an 8 minute, 8-channel sound VR live performance. The performance takes place in a physical space with an 8.2 octophonic sound system, 4 amps, and a live trumpet performer. Eight audience members are seated in rotating chairs in the center of the sound system, each wearing an Oculus Go, as the performer performs around them. Additional audience members can sit around the outskirts of the sound system and watch the performance take place without the Oculus Go. The 8 Oculus Go’s are networked to a central server via WIFI, so the audience experiences the same virtual environment. Telepresence can be performed once every 30-minutes, 4-5 times a day.
