TRINITY 360 will be a newly commissioned composition of spatial music for multiple loudspeakers and performers, including many performing groups associated with Trinity, to be presented as a large-scale live event in the Front Square of Trinity. As well as the immersive live performance, this performance will be filmed and recorded to create a 360 virtual reality presentation and surround sound recording of the event.
