Sound-wise, I heard nothing new. But visually, this is a blast. Cool factor == 11.
Mixing sound and visuals, especially movement has been a staple of choreograpy for decades.
I would like to see a better blend of both sound and added sound from light and movement interaction.
These types of sounds I have made for years on my old Casio keyboard.
I thought our MusicTech Challengers might find this inspirational.
It's an interactive art exhibition and experimental musical instrument called Exp.Inst.Rain, by Guatemalan artist Balam Soto. In his own words:
"Exp.Inst.Rain incorporates projection and sound generated by a wireless box made of wood, plexiglas, Arduino, electronic components and custom touch sensors. By touching the box at various points, participants create different sounds; these sounds then generate changes in the projection.
"It is an analysis of the social and cultural adoption of tangible user interface. Globally, touch devices are increasingly common; people understand how to use them. “Exp.Inst.Rain” analyses this new technology and makes use of this new common understanding to fuse sound and visuals into real-time interactivity.
"This artworks it’s power by Arduino and wireless vibes , using Capacitive Touch Sensor and home made aluminium electrode to pick up touch. Custom software acts as a Bridge between the Exp.inst.X and Midi software."
