THE FOREST (SKOGEN) is an interactive sound art exhibition created by Swedish composer Anders Lind in collaboration with Swedish scenographer Ulla Karlsson. THE FOREST is created as a multiplayer orchestra platform for novices (or experts). Within THE FOREST the visitors becomes orchestra performers ready to explore preprocessed sounds from the Swedish forest in combination with sounds from a traditional symphony orchestra. THE FOREST was first exhibited at Norrlandsoperan, Umeå, Sweden in 2019.
SHARP distance sensors connected to an Arduino board captures and translates the movements from the visitors into digital numbers. Maxuino bridges the digital numbers into pre-programmed Max-patches created in Max 7.
