SYNOPSIS

Multimedia 360° installation by Markus Oberndorfer about the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles

DETAIL

Staging The Ordinary by Markus Oberndorfer is part of a long-standing multidisciplinary engagement. The artists has created a series of 360° videos in 2016 which served as the base for further developments of a multitude of projects - Staging The Ordinary being one of them.

The title already gives away a little of what was intended with the sounddesign. Everything heard in the video was created from scratch - staged in way - since it wasn't possible to record sound on location. This approach opened up a lot of opportunities and led to a sound aesthetic that moves away from a purely documentary approach and closely resembles audio known from games like GTA V - especially since the chosen viewpoint matches the in-game view  so closely. Scripts were also created for the passers-by, music was chosen for many establishments on the strip and ambisonic ambiences from LA were used to create a world of sound that transforms daily routine into its very own narrative.

Last but not least an imaginary radio station was created and curated by the artist which can be mixed live with the ambisonic sound design to further extend the experience and to stay true to the chosen game audio aesthetics.
