Kilgore‘s Resort is an installation adaptation of the concert piece Kilgore. It is based on the same virtual 3D environment but can now be explored by various visitors at the same time by navigating avatars through the landscape with a joy-stick. No specific tasks have to be accomplished and there are no competitions with winners or losers. However, various sound producing objects can be encountered while meandering through the virtual landscape that allow for interaction and thereby change the overall sonic state. In Kilgore’s Resort the avatars of all participants are present in the same environment. They can therefore meet and interact with each other.
Kilgore‘s Resort was commissioned in 2018 by the Hafnarborg Museum in Iceland for an exhibition curated by Thráinn Hjálmarsson, which took place in January 2019.
