Gillies, Samuel (2020) Composing with Frames and Spaces: Cinematic Virtual Reality as an Audiovisual Compositional Practice. Doctoral thesis, University of Huddersfield.

This project offers a creative investigation into the medium of Cinematic Virtual Reality, identifying the
distinguishing characteristics of the medium as they relate to the technical, thematic and aesthetic language
the creative has access to. Drawing primarily on CVR as a cinematic construct, this investigation focuses on
two key concepts that differentiate CVR from fixed frame media: frames (the window in which the virtual
world is composed and navigated by the viewer) and spaces (the relationship between the viewer and the
surrounding virtual environment).

The creative portfolio explores many different possible implementations of creative thought in CVR, bringing
the world of contemporary electronic and electroacoustic music into the audiovisual medium of CVR. The
ideas of frames and spaces are used to structure a discussion of the creative portfolio, allowing this PhD to
document the act of composing audiovisual works in CVR that are conceived from the unique communicative
properties of the media.
