Computational Audiovisual Composition and the Allosphere
by Wesley Smith, UC Santa Barbara


The Allosphere -- a 3 story spherical projection surface located in a
near-anechoic chamber -- is a unique space for interactive and
immersive audiovisual environments. This talk will describe recent
research in audiovisual software for composing works and environments
in the Allosphere. The subject of the software, which we term
Computational Audiovisual Composition, maintains a philosophical
concern with both computational aesthetics and the nature of
audiovisual composition on the computer, addressing the Allosphere's
status as a hybrid scientific and artistic instrument.
