This is a collaborative, multi-user audio-visual experience. Sensors in a table and objects combine to create a sonic experience that is different every time a piece is moved. Created by the Music Technology Group at the University Of Pompeu Fabra, Spain, it allows the instrument to be played by simultaneous performers, opening a whole universe of musical possibilities.
You are invited to measure your emotional reaction to music as a part of the an on-going experiment. Does your body like music that you thought you hated? Using heart-rate monitors and galvanic skin response, the experiment reads your physical response to a selection of music samples.
The Theremin Inspectors is a mixed-reality visualization experience that enables people to actually see the electromagnetic fields that they interact with every day. Using a theremin—an electronic instrument you play by moving your hands through open space rather than touching controls—the exhibit highlights how the human body can interact with electromagnetic energy to make music. The key feature of the exhibit is a “mixed-reality” video system that shows the performer live in real time, with a data visualization effect that shows an imaginative rendering of the cloud of electromagnetic energy around the instrument.
This shell-like shape encapsulates you within an immersive audiovisual structure. While resonating in surround and tactile sound and delivering specially composed visuals to your eyes, low frequencies are fed through the floor converting sound into vibrations through your body. This installation by the Italian multimedia artist known as TeZ is not for the faint-hearted.
