Sonic Avanscena

installation
DESCRIPTION

Comissioned by Avanscena International Festival of Scenography and Theatre Costumes in Treviso, Italy.

Sonic Avanscena is a interactive installation for concrete sounds controlled with Arduino, infra-red proximity sensors, light sensors and Max/Msp.

It consists of a system of 4 couples of stereo speakers placed in a round room according to the disposition of theatre costumes designed by the artist Mateja Benedetti.

Conrete sounds linked to the materials of the costumes are triggered when visitors enter the room. while specific real-time processing and spatialisation happen when a visitor is in front of a  costume.
