Title :
Code and Carpentry
Info :

Distance sensors were used to trigger and control synthesised sounds by sending MIDI data via Arduino microcontrollers to music software. Moving around the space and waving your hands created music. A touch sensitive rail was also developed and allowed audience members to explore the colourful, sound reactive environment and interact with the structures.

Produced for, and exhibited at the international Fierce Festival of Performance Art 2015.
