Sonic Avanscena


Comissioned by Avanscena International Festival of Scenography and Theatre Costumes in Treviso, Italy in 2014.

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

The system consists of four couples of stereo speakers placed in a round room, according to the position 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 with real-time processing and  audio spatialisation acting when a person is in front of a specific costume.
