This project explores the relationship between planetary topographies, ecologies in the midst of quarantine, and abstract soundscapes. Ari Melenciano has materialized this relationship through an audio-visual webVR platform. Each of the 5 pages are dedicated to major cities around the world. Imagery is captured from Google Earth to showcase their local topographies in WebVR. Portals throughout the webVR experience share sounds of a modular synthesizer where Ari has developed algorithms to convert the cities' climate data during COVID-19's quarantine into voltage-controlled current for the synthesizer to amplify into abstract soundscapes.
