Arizona State University media artist and sound researcher Garth Paine will premiere his new work “Future Perfect” in Germany Dec. 8.

The work is the culmination of a prestigious research residency at IRCAM, Centre Pompidou in Paris and the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien in Germany. Paine, who has a joint appointment in interactive sound and digital media in the School of Arts, Media and Engineering and in composition in the School of Music in ASU’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, developed “Future Perfect” for high order ambisonic sound diffusion and a new 3D cell phone music system. It also includes an immersive 3D video performance.

He will premiere “Future Perfect” at the third edition of the inSonic festival at the ZKM. The festival is a showcase for genre-spanning artistic confrontations with new media technologies and innovative concepts, which will be explored in lectures, hands-on demonstrations, concerts and live coding performances. Festival visitors will have the chance to try out Paine’s newly developed performance system in a hands-on demonstration and then attend the concert performance on Dec. 8.

The work will also be available in 2019 as a VR concert experience.
