‘onomatopoeia’ is an interactive single in which the listener can move around the screen to find image and sounds in every corner of a 360-degree virtual reality.
It was created by the Peruvian Berlin-based experimental musician Ale Hop and the filmmaker Lorena García in 3D Sound (ambisonics) and Virtual Reality.
In ‘onomatopoeia’ Ale Hop presents us with a disembodied, ethereal space, in which the form of the piece is constructed as the sound design of a film, with sounding words floating around the spectrum and resounding their metatextuality The time ticks but we stay still.
It is available on 2 platforms and is meant to be listened with headphones.
Only supported by YouTube App on the IPhone
To interact drag with a mouse or click the arrows in the upper left corner of the screen. On a mobile device, you can drag your finger across the screen to move.
The piece can be listened to in a different way every time since the sound situation changes as we move around the screen.
