This paper describes a system which is used to project musicians in two or more co-located venues into a shared virtual acoustic space. The sound of the musicians is captured using spot mics. Afterwards, it is projected at the remote end using spatialization software based on virtual microphone control (ViMiC) and an array of loudspeakers. In order to simulate the same virtual room at all co-located sites, the ViMiC systems communicate using the OpenSound Control protocol to exchange room parameters and the room coordinates of the musicians.
