Hyphae

Three laptops encased in paper spheres improvise a networked audio/visual performance. They create binaural beating sine wave drones which are meant to stimulate certain brain wave frequencies (moods) in order to create tension and release in the composition. The computers are autonomous (no power, speakers, etc) but they rely on the information they get from each other over the network. When one computer dies, the performance quickly dwindles to a close. The light in the spheres is directly connected to the amplitude of the drone.

Note: The original audio was too quiet so I've substituted another recording of the sound. Since it is created through a generative process it doesn't match up perfectly with the lights.
