"Ecstasy / Light / Inertia" is an interactive narrative-driven application that proposes a novel method to experience new music in a gamified setting. It is comprised of a 3d environment that allows navigation and interaction aiming to present a narrative-driven virtual alternative to a traditional concert setting/sound art gallery.

"Ecstasy / Light / Inertia" exhibits multi-layered music installations in virtual spaces built with high-quality real-life 3d scans inside the Unreal Game Engine. It additionally combines spatial audio modeling, Nordic modernist architecture/nature, and gamified interaction paradigms to pursue a setting capable of delivering an engaging musical experience accompanying a narrative-driven design. The current paper presents a summary of the justification for this project, documents the advances of the prologue and first level, and finally sets custom evaluation methodologies for the near future.
