This installation refers to characteristic soundscapes of Krakow.
By moving hands above a map of the city, visitors can experience various soundscapes of different parts of the city.
It’s built using light sensors which react on the changing of the light while hovering the map with hands. Sensors are connected to an Arduino shell and the elaboration of data and sounds is made with Max7.
The soundscape recordings were made with a binaural recording technique, which allows to recreate a realistic impression of the hearable environment.
KRK SoundShadows is the result of a collaboration between Francescco Fabris, Denim Szram and Patrycja Maksilewic for the “European Affairs” Exposition at the international meeting between the University of Art Science of The Hague (Netherlands) and the Intermedia Department of Krakow (Poland).
