Installation No. 1

for computer, microphone, and projector (2009) indeterminate, Performance TBA


Pure Data and Gem are used to create visuals and sound.  The bonk object is used to trigger colored graphics. The more "bonks" or sounds that get picked up by the microphone the more colored lines appear and the larger they get.  The color of these lines also change as each new sound is processed. The lines are created using the particle objects in Gem. The installation is designed to be in a large space where it can soak up the ambient sounds and translate them into these colored lines.  In addition, simple sound oscillators are also triggered.
