‘audible color’ is an audio-visual instrument developed by hideaki matsui and momo miyazaki at the copenhagen institute of interaction design.
the device uses a camera to recognize shades as sounds using detection and generation controlled with processing code.
primary colors red, green and blue correspond with certain music notes. when the tones are mixed, the resulting secondary hue
produces a melody. the size of the droplets influence the volume and frequency of the notes played.
Spoonphony is a kinetic sound installation with a rhythmic core. Based on the idea of a spoon as percussion instrument.
2 week project based on the brief of spoon. I was interested in the sonic properties of the spoon and how it has been used very often to make “sound”. Kids messing around, hosts using it to attract the crow’s attention etc.
Sync by Max Hattler A simple but mind blowing looping circular video projection. Reminds of the Eames films and their ability to create hypnotic transcendence. Winner of the Visual Music Award 2011 Special Prize, the Award for Best Video Installation at Multivision Festival 2011, and a Special Mention at Premio Simona Gesmundo 2011.
DJ Light is an immersive public sound and light installation that gives visitors the power to orchestrate an awe-inspiring performance of light and sound across a large public space. It was created for energy company Endesa as the cornerstone of their Christmas celebrations in Lima, Peru.
23N! (Flickr user zeni666) made this TV Bug noise instrument using a CRT TV, SN76477 noise chip, and 3 phototransistors. (Presumably) it works by feeding the output of the sound chip into the TV, where the resulting video signal then gets looped back into the circuit using the light-sensitive phototransistors.
Audiovisual Installation 2010 http://www.ryoichikurokawa.com/ Kurokawa composes time based sculpture with digital generated materials and field recorded sources, and the minimal and the complexities coexist there. Kurokawa accepts sound and imagery as a unit not as separately, and constructs very exquisite and precise computer based works with the audiovisual language. That shortens mutual distance, the reciprocity and the synchronization of sound and visual composition. He also performed live-visual for musicians such as HUMAN AUDIO SPONGE(ex.YMO: Sketch Show + Ryuichi Sakamoto). In recent years, Kurokawa is invited to numerous noted international festivals and museums in Europe, US and Asia including TATE MODERN[UK], ARS ELECTRONICA[AT], transmediale[DE], Shanghai eARTS[CN], MUTEK[CA], and SONAR[ES] for concert and exhibition, and he continues to be an active presence on the international stage.
