Thursday, December 7, 2017 - 1:30pm

Scott L. Miller, with support from a St. Cloud State University 2017 Research Faculty Improvement Grant, has created Raba, a virtual reality concert piece. This work was created in collaboration with Mark Gill of the SCSU Visualization Lab, Rein Zobel of Maru VR, and Ensemble U:, Estonia’s premier new music ensemble, based in Tallinn.

Raba (which means “bog” in Estonian) is an immersive audio-visual concert piece inspired by the Marimetsa Raba, located about an hour drive from Tallinn. Raba is experienced by the audience seated in swiveling office chairs and wearing VR headsets. Audience members can visually explore a 360 video while Ensemble U: performs the music, Raba, in sync with the film.
