Square Circles VR is an immersive virtual reality work that draws upon William Barton’s Country, culture and dreaming. It uses emergent digital storytelling to create breathtaking visual landscapes, featuring Barton's visceral music, along with friend and collaborator violist Stephen King and the Australian String Quartet (ASQ).

Set to a score performed and recorded by Barton and the ASQ on Peramangk Country at Ukaria Cultural Centre, this stunning blend of music and visual artistry from Go Patterson Films and Jumpgate VR offers a rare fusion of culture and technology.
