AltspaceVRX-TALK: Virtual Immersive Concerts
10. Februar 2022 um 20:00 – 21:30Kostenlos
The pandemic has also brought about a digital transformation in concerts. But how immersive can a digital live music event be and what conclusions can we draw from this for the time after Corona? Lukas Haack dealt with this topic in his master’s thesis. We are delighted that he will be sharing his exciting findings at his X-TALK on February 10.
ABOUT THE TALK
According to the European network for live music associations DMA, 2020 saw an unprecedented 70% decline of music events and artist performances and 76% decline of audience visits. Contact restrictions due to the newly emerged coronavirus are still forcing artists and live music venues to find new sources of income and constitute new forms of digital events. The 2020 pandemic showcases the lack of immersion in live streams e.g. via YouTube, Instagram, or Facebook or web conference systems such as Zoom, Skype, or GoToMeeting when aiming to substitute physical events using already existing technology. In the era of the metaverse and ubiquitous computing, where mobile devices, VR glasses, and the internet can be used to stream events, virtual concert events are becoming an increasingly relevant topic of discussion.
Lukas’ master thesis is an approach to formalize the dynamics of a physical concert experience and then translate the individual psychological factors by means of communication technology to the computer-mediated context, combining several research disciplines from the social sciences (such as psychology, communication science and media studies) as well as computer science.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Lukas studied Communication and Media Computer Science in Dresden, Linköping and Amsterdam and graduated with his master-thesis on “Virtual Immersive Concerts”.
