Island Of Eternity : An Interactive Soundscape

Adapted from the novel The Invention Of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares
The sonic space is structured using three layers:
1.One meant to blend the background sounds together with the lowest β€œfrequency” components with the immersive soundscape of the project.
2.Two regional layers represent two regions of the island (the museum and the factory) and help convey key elements and concepts of the narrative.
3.Two local layers conveyed by hyper-directional speakers that display the event-specific components of the narrative.
Movement and location in this space interact with the sonic space and transform it. The challenge here is to blend these layers in to a harmonious and meaningful environment.
