The 5th order Ambisonic Dome at the School of Arts, Media and Engineering is a unique, state-of-the-art space to work with spatial audio. The Dome contains 45 speakers, allowing for the precise placement of sounds anywhere along a three-dimensional space, giving artists the opportunity to create immersive audio experiences and explore new frontiers of sonic art, virtual reality and multimedia art.

In 2022, with support from a Herberger Institute Research Building and Investment Grant (HIRBI) and AME, guest artists Sarah Belle Reid, Elainie Lillios, and Tito Rivas were invited to ASU for residencies to develop new works for the dome and give workshops and presentations about their creative practices.

These newly commissioned works were premiered at the 2022 PRISMS festival alongside new pieces by ASU faculty composers Gabriel Bolaños and Garth Paine.

The Dome was designed by Garth Paine with technical director Peter Weisman.
