This article discusses the concept of telematic immersion developed in partnership with composer Paulo C. Chagas. Focusing on Chagas’s work Virtual Studies (2020) for flute, live electronics, and 3D video, we reflect on different aspects of artistic creativity in the telematic environment including the use of audio and video technology and the multiple connections between musicians and apparatuses. The article discusses how the parameters of chamber music in the physical environment, such as the uniqueness of the live performance, the corporality of sound, and the visual and choreographic dimension of the performance are being transformed through the virtual setting of the telematic environment. Moreover, we introduce the project Connecting Creative Communities as an example of how our research in telematic music has pedagogic applications. We show how the telematic paradigm involves not only the technology of interaction among human beings but also connections between humans, other intelligent systems, and affect.
