OTHER WORLD COMPANION is an electronic music art exhibit. This livestream is a fusion of synthesized musical compositions by George Zhen combined with field recordings, live radio communications and immersive visualizations to create a digital artscape unlike any other.

The exhibit launched at Midnight GMT on April 20, 2021 and will run for an entire calendar year as a livestream on YouTube. During that time, the exhibit will be anything but static in nature. In addition to adding more musical compositions on a regular basis, the exhibit will also incorporate live radio communications from live events such as spacewalks, rocket launches, scanner traffic and the like. The result is a kaleidoscope of sound and color that expresses the impact of now.

It can be immersive. Or it can be passive. Either way, it’s your OTHER WORLD COMPANION.
