Spatial Orchestra is a deeply immersive, augmented reality (AR) application for the Magic Leap headset that allows audiences to experience the wonder of an interactive spatial sound piece. Immersents explore a rich diversity of habitats composed of numerous augmented bubbles which consist of music notations. The augmented space becomes transformed into an instrument, where the augmented bubbles the viewer encounters and interacts with generate harmonious and orchestrated sound. All of this is in search of spatial exploration. Altering the spatial composition provides an interesting way for users to interact with space. This concept of registration and positioning, while simple, can be powerful as it taps into the user’s pre-existing relationship with space. This is at the heart of Spatial Orchestra.
