Fishing for Sound: An Interactive Installation Inspired by Acoustic Ecology
"Fishing for Sound" is an interactive installation that addresses the problem of underwater noise pollution in South Florida. The installation was designed by Mavy Mastrovito; the interactivity was programmed by Liza Seigido ( psycheopera.com ) using Max 8, which read key presses from the Vilros Fun Force microcontroller, and triggered sound samples, video clips, and dmx lighting scenes in Enttec's DMXIS. Max was also used to process the ambient sounds captured in the performance environment, and adjusted the RGB values of the video clips in real-time according to amplitude changes of recordings that where triggered by the Vilros Fun Force. The installation was debuted at FIU's Wertheim Performing Arts Center Recital Hall on July 20, 2019.
