In this new interactive virtual reality work the user is plunged into a dream-like underwater scene, ghostly and glowing submarine life appears and invites one to sing with and through them.

The organisms respond to your voice, their animation alters depending on the pitch, vibration and intensity of the sound you give them. In turn they react, echoing the users’ voice with their own choir. The experience aims to provoke a playful state of synaesthesia and self-hypnosis, creating a sense of connection and shared communication with another species, fostering experimentation, creativity, caring and discovery.

Mélodie Mousset works across a number of mediums, including installation, performance, photography, sculpture, new media and virtual reality. Her works draw upon personal biography to produce playful and psychologically charged narratives that investigate the interactions between the self and technology, the synthetic and the real. Her work is often meant to challenge the senses; elements are juxtaposed and transformed to create eerie and whimsical assemblages in which the body becomes a site for physical and spiritual exchanges with technology.

Edo Fouilloux is a visual mind exploring sound, graphics and playful interaction within immersive mediums. Since 2015, Edo has been working alongside research institutions, projects, and people around the world, seeking to expand new horizons of flow and immersion. He aims to forge new ways of thinking and playing with real-time interactive audio visuals. Today, he is the director and co-founder of Patch studio — a software house specializing in creating musical tools and playful experiences for XR.

Edo Fouilloux (b. 1987, Ensenada, Mexico). Lives and works Copenhagen, Denmark
