A portable screen is used to visualise the Spatial Sound Sculpture, combined with a composition by Rutger Zuydervelt, surrounding the viewer through four loudspeakers. A camera attached to the screen collects information of the space surrounding it from markers distributed on adjacent surfaces. The screen becomes a transmitter superimposing a digital layer - the sculpture - onto the space surrounding the viewer.

The process of Spatial Sound Sculpture allows the viewer to abandon the passive position of the merely on-looking consumer; they are enabled to visually and acoustically intervene with the sculpture, to model and re-module it. The changing positions of the viewer affect the visualisations on the screen, rendering an 'extended reality' accessible. The sculpture generated is individually linked to each observer.
