DESCRIPTION of innerland

„Innerland“, an interactive VR installation.

 

The art project is based on the piano concerto Opus 25 by Viktor Ullmann (1898-1944).

It consists of a technically complex new recording of the piano concerto in 3D sound and a virtual reality media art installation.

In the interactive installation "Innerland" genre-spanning film and sound recordings made during the 3D music production are combined to create dreamlike scenes. In the medium of the game engine, a visual language is created for the cinematic presentation of a concert, which enables multi-perspective views. Together with the free choice of the spectator’s point of view in VR, an alternative spatial narrative is created.

Documentary/biographical scenes form a separate walk-in background to a largely abstract image-art space experience, in which the work establishes a strong thematic reference to early abstract film works of the 1920s and 1930s - the same time period the piano concerto was created. Objects, colours, movements and sound are directly intertwined, as all instruments were recorded individually and could be freely grouped into clusters.
The viewer decides for himself how he wants to attend the music performance within the sceneries created by the artist.
