Privacy is needed to schedule personal activities and social interac-tion, and to prepare and create wonderful things before confidentlysharing with others. How to build privacy in virtual reality remainsan open question, though it is potentially as important as it is inreality. This paper presents two studies to build privacy in VR witha focus on providing sonic privacy to aid collaborative music mak-ing (CMM). The first study uses soundproof walls to provide sonicprivacy, the second study applies augmented sound attenuation asa way to produce sonic privacy to aid collaborative music making.Results show privacy is needed and both ways can produce sonicprivacy. Privacy provided in the first study is binary and discrete,whilst privacy provided in the latter is continuous, step-less andadjustable. By comparing and discussing between these two ap-proaches, we propose a methodological approach to build privacyto aid collaboration in shared virtual reality. In particular, three channels for building privacy have been identified and three implications have been proposed for designing privacy for collaborative tasks in shared virtual environments, collaborative music making in particular.
