An interactive installation which aims to create a sonification of stars and constellations data through a dedicated interface. Since there’s no sound in space, I wanted to to conceptualize a link between electromagnetic and sound waves allowing visitors to learn about specific stars through sound information. Two players can use the system at the same time, by moving their right hands over the two black, circular sensors. The data rendered for each star are: temperature (color index: red star = old and cold, blue star = hot and young), brightness (as seen from Earth), distance (from Earth) respectively mapped into: frequency (Hz), amplitude (dB), duration (ms). The project has been developed using Arduino, Leap Motion and Max7.
this is an ongoing series, consisting of hour long [1hr 20mins with 002 onwards] compositions directed to electronics, ambient, improvisation and good ol' music fans.
