near dante experience

Near Dante Experience is an immersive electro-acoustic composition to experiment in VR (virtual reality). It offers an immersion inspired by a 14th-century poem, the “Divine Comedy” written by Dante Alighieri. «Lasciate Ogni Speranza voi che entrate» (Abandon all hope, you who enter here), this old Italian saying that precedes the door of hell of Dante’s hell invites you to engage in a soundscape. A world outside of all worlds.

A collaborative project by Gerard Hourbette (Art Zoyd), electroacoustic composer, Laura Mannelli (lA & Revv Studio), architect & digital artist, Frederick Thompson (Revv Studio), immersive designer, Oudom Southammavong & Jeffrey Gerbe (Art Zoyd), music computing director.
