Sound : Past & Future Project

Virtual Band ︎

WebVR-based collaboration visual-audio composition frameworks.

This project is web-based collaboration visual-audio composition frameworks. Users can meet in a virtual space as random characters. The sound made by one user through a microphone can be heard by all other users. Based on this, they can play together and make one music. The user can be a performer and also a singer by selecting a menu. The instruments include piano, cello, guitar, etc. and the voice can be changed by choosing Pitch shifter, Autowah, Pinged and Apollo options. Alos users can change the virtual background. A user's voice has a relative volume and positional audio, depending on where the user is located in the virtual space. For example, if another user is close to my left, the user's voice will be heard loud from my left. Virtual Band is available on any VR device.
