C.H.I.M.I.R.A. started as an undergraduate Capstone Project under the direction of Dr. Keith Hamel at the UBC's Applied Music Technology Program directed by Dr. Robert Pritchard and Dr. Keith Hamel.
It is a technological pursuit to present and perform elements of sound with plainly correlated visual components. CHIMIRA aims to supplement the abstract experience of listening to sounds: to provoke the hearing experience in a novel, innovative, and accessibly meaningful manner.
