This paper presents an interdisciplinary approach for incorporating computer music and virtual reality (VR) practices into a multimedia performance installation. The approach makes use of the complete surrounding virtual environment made available by VR technology and the stage acoustic setting of spatial audio to achieve a fully immersive experience for the audience. A bring-yourown-device (BYOD) strategy is adopted that requires the audience members to use their own smartphones as a 360-degree viewing device. A number of issues in relation to the implementation of multimedia performances that incorporate VR are discussed, including a technique for synchronizing the visual content of the audience and the interactivity among sound, music, and vision.
